People and Business: Spin doctor's day out
Friday 19 March 1999
Observers licked their lips at the prospect of a meeting, but were disappointed to see them deep in chummy conversation. Mr Whelan later said: "I'm doing much better than him, at least I've found a new job. I've been giving him a few tips."
I also learnt that Mr Whelan performed the entire "Heart of Midlothian" to a fascinated audience the previous night to celebrate St Patrick's Day.
Mr Whelan has not been idle since leaving Number 11, writing a football column for the Observer and occasional pieces for this very organ. He is also doing the usual "this and that".
