Tony Greaves is the ultimate beard and sandals leftie Liberal. Indeed, when he was made a LibDem Peer I half expected him to take the title Lord Greaves of Beard & Sandals. He is a thoroughly good chap though and runs an excellent second hand book business. This week he has a letter in LibDem News.
Sir, There are two things to do if you find yourself in a hole. (1) Stop digging. (2) Keep your head down and stay out of sight until everything calms down. Could someone please have a word with Mr and Mrs Oaten?
Lord Greaves will be interested therefore to know that Mr & Mrs Oaten have ignored his advice and instead followed the excellent PR advice from Gavin Grant to appear on Channel 5's Matthew Wright Show tomorrow morning at 9am. It is a great blessing to all Conservatives that Mr Grant is advising Ming Campbell as well as the Oatens. What on earth do the Oatens hope to achieve by putting themselves through this constant saga of car crash TV interviews?
