Major Goes For Kelvin

There’s been more than one disputed phone call this week. A brief side show from today’s main Leveson action was John Major claiming that the infamous “bucket of sh*t” conversation between him and Kelvin MacKenzie never took place.

Note he didn’t actually say it didn’t happen. There was a witness after all…
