Who fled Fred?

BAD news, fight fans: the big boxing bout involving former Lib Dem Camden councillor Fred Carver at the London Irish Centre on March 22 has had to be postponed. Not because Fred is getting the jitters, but because his opponent has ducked out. No surprise really, I wouldn’t fancy my chances in the ring with The Carver. The fleeing contender has not been named. It doesn’t mean Fred will be hanging up his gloves without throwing a punch, however. He explains: ‘My opponent pulled out and they couldn’t find anyone else my weight and level for me to fight. I’ll be on their next show, fighting on August 2.’ Sooooo… Does anybody of a similar build fancy the challenge? What about Labour councillor Phil Jones, who now sits in Fred’s old Cantelowes ward? We’d all pay good money to see that scrap. Fred took up boxing to raise money for the Sri Lanka Campaign for Peace and Justice.

    Are you trying to get me killed, Richard? The last thing we need right now is another by-election. Besides, I am dubious that I am the same weight and level as The Carver. Unless he has lost a few pounds of muscle and is really, really rubbish…….

    What about Theo – it would be fun to see him get bullied for once
