So has anyone emerged from Sachsgate in credit? A quick search of Google traffic reveals that Georgina Baillie, Andrew Sachs’s grand-daughter, is attracting |10 times as much interest as Britney Spears (and normally |no one beats Britney). And Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross have seen interest double. So the loser is the licence-fee payer, who has lost a damned fine radio controller in Lesley Douglas.
