Julie Meyer, Jeremy Thorpe (played by Hugh Grant), Max Mosley & Jonathan Aitken odd one out result

By Tom Winnifrith | Monday 4 June 2018


There were many varied answers to the Sunday Odd One Out contest HERE. I am not sure that there is any evidence that Hugh Grant uses sex toys, unless of course you count hookers in LA as sex toys. I am sure some answers are correct. However what I was looking for is that the odd one out is....

Former Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe. That is because Mosley, Aitken and Julie "lingerie on expenses" Meyer have all sought to gag the press and/or whistleblowers using threatening lawyers letters. Grant is also keen on gagging the press as he does not like folks mentioning the hooker in LA and other matters. On the other hand, Jeremy Thorpe's way of dealing with a whistleblower was to hire someone to murder him, which makes him the odd one out.
