Back in 1972, Ferri recalled, disaffected teenagers were dispatched to the local techy three days a week. “It’s a great idea and we should look at it,” he concluded.

A flummoxed Russell retorted: “The last trade unionist who became a Tory politician was Norman Tebbit.”

Right-wing, bald. Could they be related?
