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.’
