A hilarious story in the Telegraph today, reporting that some 35 years ago whilst at Oxford University current Attorney General Dominic Grieve was involved in throwing future Government Colleague Damian Green off a bridge and into a river 12 fee below!
Green was then the President of the Oxford Union, and could have been badly injured in the incident, with only one and a half feet of water to break his fall onto stoney ground. The incident apparently caused quite a stir at the time, and was reported in the Oxford University student newspaper.
One of the by-lines on the original story? Michael Crick.
It was claimed that Mr Green, the man now responsible for the police, was thrown off a bridge and into the River Cherwell by a group, which included Mr Grieve.
Undergraduates working for Cherwell, the university’s student newspaper, have unearthed a story describing how a group of students set upon the former President of the Oxford Union more than 35 years ago.
