It is said that the five words politicians most fear are ‘Michael Crick is in reception’. Local resident Michael Crick, political correspondent for Channel 4 News, ex-Newsnight presenter, biographer of Arthur Scargill, Jeffrey Archer, Michael Heseltine, Michael Howard and Alex Ferguson, and member of the Clapham Society will reveal some of his encounters with politics and politicians. Most recently he was attacked by Godfrey Bloom of Ukip who said afterwards he was thinking of taking up shooting and ‘Crick might be the first cartridge’.
