CommentIsLinked@LDV: Jonathan Calder – ‘Tory MP: Ferry political prisoner’

Over at the New Statesman’s blog, Jonathan Calder looks at Bryan Otis Ferry’s position as a ‘political prisoner’, while looking at Lembit’s long-term ambitions:

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.

    Blimey, you need to learn to read things properly – it’s Otis Ferry, not Bryan Ferry!

    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.
