More on Brian Sedgemore

Adrian Slade (the man who auditioned Peter Cook for the Cambridge Footlights) has a letter in Friday's Liberal Democrat News:

Not many people know it, and as a Labour MP he was reluctant to admit it, but Brian Sedgemore was a signed up member of the Liberal Party for two years between 1965 and 1967.

So welcome back, Brian! I wonder if he remembers how he helped me when I was candidate for Putney in the 1966 general election. We both felt much the same about the conservatism of Harold Wilson's Labour Party in those days and we campaigned strongly together against the environmentally disastrous motorway box that Labour was attempting to impose on London.
