Threadbone Silence Ends With Unlikely Interview?


The non-appearance and complete silence of Mrs Amanda J Threadbone which has troubled the stock markets of the world quite as much as the general public was apparently broken today with the publication of the latest edition of Dorset Motor Sport Magazine. In that issue - which features a number of articles celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Professor Thrupiece's last and greatest Grand Prix win (The Monaco Grand Prix of May 1967) - Mrs Threadbone gives an exclusive interview in which she reveals that the the great man was "brilliant in everything except steering ... when that was required he struggled badly".

Though motor racing fans will seize on the controversial content of the interview, Mrs Threadbone's legion of admirers will be more intrigued by the fact she has spoken at all - and recently to boot!

General editor of Dorset Motor Sport Magazine - Ben Zoline - says that the interview was recorded in Mrs Threadbone's home 8 months ago, several months before she "disappeared". Is this of significance then? "Frankly no!" says Mr Zoline, "we haven't seen hide nor hair of her since and when we contacted her office for corrections and approvals we were told she was unavailable".

Meanwhile, fans of the late Professor Thrupiece, "F1's Smiling Assassin", are divided on the veracity of Mrs Threadbone's observation. One said he was "shocked, surprised and frankly disbelieving", whilst, near total invalid Jim Sadly-Damaged - who was once struck by the Professor's car when hiding behind a straw bale at Maggotts - said "I'm not in the least surprised, just before he hit me I heard him say "How the hell do you steer this bloody thing" It was nearly the last thing I ever heard". Other fans described Mr Badly-Damaged's comment as "contentious".


September's Dorset Motor Sport Magazine is a special issue commemorating Professor Thrupiece's final Grand Prix triumph.  The interview with Mrs Threadbone is controversial for more reasons than one.
