John Spencer, of the eponymously named consultancy, returns from

Washington joyful and triumphant at having secured a slice of business

from Republican activists.



The brief is to secure the postal votes of the 200,000 odd Americans in

the UK (not including the military), and to ‘exchange ideas with the

political right in the UK’. Although Republican hopeful Bob Dole is no

longer in the first flush of youth, Spencer tells me he has one elderly

trump card to play in his bid to win the hearts of expatriate voters.

The campaign has enlisted the services of right-wing titan Charlton

Heston - the man who parts the Red Sea more easily than Michael

Heseltine parts his hair.
