Diary: Hapless Hayes gets a cheer from pub quiz team

All sorts of unkind things have been said about poor old Jerry Hayes since Max Clifford and the News of the World got their knives out for him at the weekend.

Not least, it has been suggested that the man the Daily Mail describes

as ’Westminster’s most irrepressible media groupie’ - having, among

other things, appeared in chicken and bear costumes for TV stunts - is

not serious about his politics.



I’m happy to refute that suggestion here and now. Hayes, I can report,

is so conscientious about his calling that he recently took the trouble

to leave an afternoon pub quiz in Westminster’s Red Lion to table a

point of order in the House .



That’s what I call devotion to duty and, indeed, when he returned to the

Spec Communications-organised event, just 15 minutes later, we all gave

him a hearty cheer.
