Thought you'd like to know.

If I recall correctly this is the one that includes a lovely segment outside the Oxford Union with an offensively young Gyles Brandwreth and a Labour opponent who is even more plumby. (not so proleier than thou back then!).

Unless I dreamed it, a guy standing with them is smoking a roll up. I remember wondering if it was a spliff or tobacco and had my suspicions confirned when the guy drops it and replaces it with a straight cigarette!

Those were the days.

Good grief! What sad folk have nothing better to do on a Saturday than watch this? Beggars belief.
