Demon eyes on a Straw role;Letter

20th August 1999 at 01:00
I was watching a children's programme on TV called The Demon Headmaster the other day and I could not believe my eyes. If that wasn't Jack Straw, I'm a monkey's uncle!

He's either a dead ringer or the real thing. If Private Eye's Ian Hislop is doing BBC advertisements and Jack Straw is acting, well, whatever next?

If it is Jack Straw, that would certainly explain some of the present government's policies, wouldn't it?
