Energy price crisis: Lord Ashcroft dons jumper to back David Cameron’s ‘cover-up’ call
He may be rich enough to cope even with the British Gas price rise but Michael Ashcroft is putting on his jumper in a show of support for the Prime Minister.
David Cameron’s call for people to wrap up warm moved former Tory deputy chairman Lord Ashcroft to tweet a photograph of himself in a pale blue sweater. “Wearing a jumper in support of the PM’s advice to cut energy costs,” he declared.
Former Tory Health minister Edwina Currie caused a furore in 1988 when she advised the elderly to knit woollies to keep warm. She tweeted: “These days it’s advice I take.”
Former Tory MP Gyles Brandreth once told John Prescott: “The joy of a woolly jumper is that you can take it off at will, whereas the blight of a woolly mind is that you’re lumbered with it for life.”
