Michael Howard’s missus gets a two page spread in today’s News of the Screws.
Former Vogue model Sandra tells all about how the old codger wooed her.
We hear how most of the action took place on the purple bed sheets of his Chelsea bachelor pad (cf. William Hague’s 14 pints a day boast.)
It’s a transparent piece of myth-making.

“He loves soppy films like Sleepless in Seattle, which he cried at.”
Shucks – that takes the edge of his iffy immigration policy, then.
Compare the quotes with her November 2004 interview in The Lady magazine:
“Yes, he’s very romantic, which is why I get frustrated that his image in the press isn’t at all like the man I know. He’s also quite sentimental and loves films like Sleepless in Seattle.”
