BULLETS and rockets were flying in Gaza and Israel.

But one man in particular got the hell out of there. He hot-footed it to our beloved Yorkshire to take part in a photoshoot in a Chinese restaurant in Hull to support his former sidekick, Lord John Prescott, who was trying his utmost to be elected a police commissioner.

Now the election result is known, I hope the pair of them have been taught a salutary lesson.

Yorkshire folk aren’t as daft as they thought we were.
