Resolved Question: Has Neil Kinnock got what
I saw him being interviewed by Russell Harty the other day and I thought he seemed more focused, more driven than he has been in the past. They were giving out free cassettes of his manifesto the other day outside Fine Fare's, I put it in my Walkman and I have to say, I was quite impressed.
I'm not sure Thatcher will get in again but is Kinnock the man to take us into the 1990's and beyond? Would appreciate any advice or comments, thank you.

'The chancellor has recorded a special - rather flirtatious - message for a BBC presenter after she admitted on air to having erotic dreams about him.

Fogarty said "for political balance", listeners should know she had also dreamt about Labour's Neil Kinnock.'
