The 'new police shirts' is a brilliantly silly stupid idea that I love.

One thing I've never really understood is Bernard Manning's contribution to the Cake prank.
“Cake is a made-up drug. It’s not made from plants, it’s made from chemicals… by… sick bastards. One young kiddie on Cake cried all the water out of his body. Just imagine how his mother felt. It’s a f***ing disgrace.”
Bearing in mind it was the 1990s and assuming he was generally taken in by Morris's stunt,  how on Earth could he have expected his contribution to be used in a real campaign with him using language like that?

Rewatched that multiple times since I posted about it. His double take still seems genuine to me. I think he's trying to go along with something but he hasn't worked out that its him being pranked.

Doesn’t seem too far-fetched that they would have convinced him it was for a gritty, late-night PIF where that sort of thing was okay.
