[email protected]: Jonathan Calder – ‘Tory MP: Ferry political prisoner’

Besides, the alternative for him is too dreadful to contemplate. I caught a glimpse of it from behind the sofa on Saturday evening when Neil and Christine Hamilton appeared on Hole in the Wall.

    It is Otis Ferry.

    Had it been Bryan, then it could at least not been seen to have been an act of cultural cruelty, other than to the tone-deaf.
