Bill Webster: Do you remember, during the Thatcher-Heath contest, when we were in bed, back at your place, with a magnum of champagne, going at it hammer and tongs, when who should ring but dear old Brian Redhead to do your radio interview. You did very well, considering.

Shirley: Probably the only in-flagrante radio interview in the history of politics.
