Headline of the week: “Elton move over for Huppert the Rocket Man”

Now what could this, from Business Weekly, possibly be about?

Huppert the rocket man

And he actually had to do some work:

The competition saw MPs assemble and launch air powered rockets with the assistance of the apprentices in their team. The aim was to achieve the greatest horizontal distance.

Apprentices from Airbus, Astrium, Axis Electronics, Cobham, GE Aviation, GKN, Marshall Aerospace and Defence in Cambridge, MEP, Raytheon UK, RLC Engineering, Selex ES and UTC Aerospace Systems were on hand on the day to support their MP team leader in the successful launch of the rocket.

I suspect it’s going to be a long time before Julian is allowed to forget that headline. And I bet you’ve got Rocket Man in your head now. Have a nice evening.
