Smeato gets himself an agent
Since kicking the burning crotch of a would-be suicide bomber at Glasgow Airport during a crafty fag break and declaring on national TV: 'Glesga doesnae accept this, this is Glesga; we'll just set aboot ye,' baggage handler John Smeaton (Seamto to his frineds) has acquired international hero status.
He was a guest of Gordon Brown's at last week's Labour conference, having already met the Prime Minister at No.10, received an award from the Scottish Premier and was a guest of honour at this years annual Ground Zero memorial service. He has also appeared on stage at the Edinburgh Festival and at Scottish football matches, and a campaign to buy him a pint at a Glasgow Airport hotel raised enough to buy him 1400 drinks.
Now we hear that Smeato has found himself an agent to handle his event bookings and press queries. However, his aide insists that he is not a 'rent-a-hero'. She said: 'John is modest and articulate and has gone back to work on the luggage belts.'
