Fergie spotted enjoying lunch with Alistair Campbell
“Hi Fergie, it’s Alistair Campbell… yes, I’ll hold”
The worlds of football and politics circulate in close orbit to one another – this was well proved by The Spoiler just a week or so ago, thanks to a series of wonderful photographs of the ex-PM Gordon Brown hanging out with some of football’s finest.
And now, the whisper on the grapevine – or more, but still not very, specifically from a well-placed Spoiler source – is that Sir Alex Ferguson has just today enjoyed a rather tasty lunch with Alistair Campbell, who, amongst other things, was partly responsible for Tony Blair.
Yeah, thanks for that, Mr Campbell. As for what they ate, that particular debate will rage on until the end of time. Steak probably.
