another title

Some Manchester MPs reckon Sir Alex Ferguson should become a Lord

Sir and Lady…

Did anyone see The Apprentice last night? Hip Replacement? Really?

The Spoiler is pretty convinced it could stick a pin in a dictionary and come up with a better name for a pensioner’s magazine than that… Hang on…

FONDLE! There we are. Our magazine would be called Fondle. Miles better…

Another problem we have with The Apprentice is remembering Alan Sugar is not a Sir anymore, but a Lord. Unfortunately, it looks as though we could be faced with another title change – this time for one of the biggest names in football…

Labour MPs Graham Stringer and Tony lloyd reckon it’s about time Alex Ferguson ditched the Sir and became a Lord. Here’s the motion they put to the House of Commons in full:

“That this House recognises the economic, social, cultural and sporting importance of football to the United Kingdom; is therefore surprised at the paucity of representatives from the world of football in the Upper House; further notes that Sir Alex Ferguson, as the manager of Aberdeen and Manchester United, is the most successful manager in the history of British football; and calls for him to be recommended for appointment to the House of Lords.”

Quite whether the bloody Tory government with their bloody mansions and stuff would be willing to grant a peerage to a lifelong socialist is another matter.

There’s also no guarantee that Ferguson would accept it. Although his staunch socialist beliefs haven’t extended to refusing a Knighthood or standing up to the Glazers…
