Paul McCartney Got An Airline Lexus: John Lennon Got An Airport

lennon-airport.jpgPAUL McCartney has a new car. It’s a Lexus LS600H, which costs £84,000 to you, but nothing to Paul.

Lexus sponsored Paul’s US tour in 2005 and by way of a thank you for Paul allowing them to be the official car of the Frog Chorus, Lexus offered him a free car.

Says a source in the Telegraph: “Paul was offered a Lexus as a gift and ordered the hybrid limo because it helps to reduce emissions. He’ll be horrified after learning it was delivered by plane. Paul has always campaigned for green issues and he can’t understand why anyone would send an enormous car from Japan to Britain on a plane.”

Who knew that a top-of-the-range limo would cause pollution? And that it would not arrive as if by magic?

Anorak readers may well recall that Liverpool Airport is named John Lennon Airport in honour of the murdered Beatle.

We take it as fact that in getting his free car imported from half way across the world Paul was shocked and dismayed to learn that it left a carbon footprint bigger than a Russian clown convention.

But it certainly puts Lennon’s achievements in perspective. What’s his carbon footprint?

It might be time to revisit the legend of Lennon. Not that Paul wants us to look again at his better looking, more talented, more charismatic former band mate…
