Oh all right, I put my money on Doctor “Doctor Doctor” Fox. On the basis of a tip-off that he was well-liked in the City. I backed him at 12-1 at Ladbrokes; I missed the top tick because I could have got him at 14s the next day, but he is right back down now and I could take a small profit by laying him at 10s on Betfair. Bollocks to that, I’m sticking on for the real money.
I am slightly worried by the Cameron bandwagon obviously; there do seem to be a few rumours flying round that he has taken cocaine in the past, but so what? is the opinion of all the journalists I read (all of whom notoriously vote in Tory leadership elections). As far as I can tell, the only people left who would be prejudiced against someone simply because he snorted a few lines at university are a bunch of old farts in tweed suits living out in the country. Talk about out of touch granddad; they might as well be members of the Conservative Party.
Update: By the way, in further newsboard humour, the Times had a headline the other day saying something like “PRISONERS GET EXTRA TIME FOR STABBING” Is this at all wise? They seemed to be doing enough stabbing during the normal 90 minutes.
