Olly's having a laugh; YourSay.

I THOUGHT Karren Brady's column was a bit too handbag and heels, but Mike Olley's view of politics is almost laughable, and I would say his bow-tie is a lot more colourful. Let's have some grit and some humour, not the same old back-slapping mediocrity that Mike throws into the stir-fry with as much gusto as a baked spud and beans.

I never thought I would say it, but give me Maureen Messent any day, and if Karren's got some free time bring her back.

S T Vaughan, Yardley Wood n YOUR columnist Mike Olley states that Christine Braddock just "runs a technical college, one of many in the city".

This is the lady who rescued Matthew Boulton College from pounds 5 million debt and is now principal and chief executive of Matthew Boulton and Sutton colleges of further and higher education.
