Chairman defends new role

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has defended his decision to take up the post of editor of the Preston Evening Argus after militant vegans criticised the move earlier today.

Sir Norman faced a rowdy demonstration outside the gates of Ormskirk Golf Club by members of the West Lancashire Association of Vegans, whose attempts to pelt him with tofu were thwarted only by the intervention of quick-witted security staff.

Speaking later on Lancashire Radio's Preston on Sunday programme, Sir Norman said he had nothing to apologise for in taking up the new role.  He told Roger Preston, the show's host, "This gives the tripe industry a new platform to promote our fine product," adding "Being chairman only takes up a few hours a week. It gives me plenty of opportunity to engage in other - perhaps more lucrative - activities, and editing the Argus is just one of them."
