Did Tony Blair sign the Louth petition?

A petition with hundreds of names protesting the Louth schools mergers was discounted both at the consultation meeting and in today's crunch debate.

There were sniggers all round when we were told that someone had signed the petition John Prescott.

Today, one of the Conservatives voting for closure, made the assertion that the petition was inaccurate.

Councillor Julia Pears called for new rules in accepting petitions after she said someone had signed the petition Tony Blair.

Everyone laughed, until one of the added members said there were actually THREE John Prescott's listed in the Louth phone book.

So John Prescott may well have been a genuine name on the petition.

And who knows. Maybe Tony Blair signed too.
