Lamb goes hunting

Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk, has written to the Cabinet Office asking why the former secretary of Lord Levy was given the MBE, the BBC tells us.

If this account of Levy's days in the music business is true, an MBE seems scant recompense:
To disaffected former members of staff at Magnet Records, home of hits for Alvin Stardust and Chris Rea, their boss Michael Levy was a tyrant who revelled in his power. His tricks included chasing people around the office and throwing ashtrays.

Presumably the MBE is for catching the ashtrays. If so, the Pakistan cricket team might be interested in her for their slips.
