Tales from a murky past

I think I have some history with the Paul Corrigan mentioned in THIS article about Cherie Blair in the Mail on Sunday. Way back in the 1970's a Paul Corrigan used to visit our flat at Warwick University where he had befriended a couple of my flatmates. He was a Sociology lecturer and a bit of a Marxist (a very small bit by the look of his subsequent career) who would happily spout off about anything and everything, whether he knew anything about it or not. Looking at the picture in this biography in The Guardian, he has put on a fair bit of timber (as they say in Willenhall) since those days.... it must be all those breakfasts at the Cinnamon Club!
