"Hugo Rifkind is both astonished and disappointed that more people aren't making a fuss about the fact that this Tory MEP is very nearly called Ben Dover."Quite right too. When I saw the name Den Dover I couldn't help but snigger slightly. I wonder if he knows?
I've long thought this highly amusing.
I also have a friend who appeared on his class register as "Brown, Mark". Poor sod.
Does he have a running-mate called Phillip MacAvity?
His first name is in fact Densmore: i expect he shortened it to Den before his namesake started in the business . . .
I believe there a couple of Irish MEPs called Simon Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzsimons. They're very good friends, allegedly.
Den Dover knows your dad, Hugo - htye were booted out of the Commons at the same time in 1997.
Did somebody call?
