Foot : Loose and Fancied Three

Michael Foot, who recently died and is soon to be deified (though not as a result of one of Gordon’s recycled speeches), was a bit of a dark horse with the ladies.  According to his biographer the old firebrand admitted he had three affairs: with two of his secretaries and an Indian journalist at Tribune. ‘We had quite a close association at Tribune. We sometimes stayed after everybody else had gone and I sat on his knee. You can imagine sometimes things happened.’ recalls one aide.  Sounds almost as much fun as the Speccie under Boris…

Strangely one mistress when asked if she found him attractive replied ‘Not particularly, no. He wasn’t really.’

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
