The 474-mobile

REMEMBER the oh-so-spooky coincidence between Labour MP Ben Whittaker’s defeat to Tory Gefforey Finsberg in Hampstead and Highgate in 1970 and Lib Dem Ed Fordham’s recent campaign slogan 474towin in Hampstead and Kilburn? What I didn’t realise – and once again I am educated by Piers Wauchope on this – was that Finsberg celebrated his victory by installing a new number plate on his car which included the figure 474. What a touch, your majority pressed onto your wagon! Wish somebody had a picture of the Finsberg-mobile, that’s pretty football player flashy for a politcian. 

Does Glenda Jackson drive? Will she crowbar a ‘4’ and a ‘2’ on a motor?
