This allegation was put to Louse Mensch, by a journalist in an email. She made her reply public:
[INDENT]Whilst working at EMI, in the 1990s, you took drugs with Nigel Kennedy at Ronnie Scott’s in Birmingham, including dancing on a dance floor, whilst drunk, with Mr Kennedy, in front of journalists. Photos of this exist.
And the reply:
[/INDENT][INDENT]Although I do not remember the specific incident, this sounds highly probable. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nigel Kennedy, whom I remember with affection. Additionally, since I was in my twenties, I’m sure it was not the only incident of the kind; we all do idiotic things when young. I am not a very good dancer and must apologise to any and all journalists who were forced to watch me dance that night at Ronnie Scott’s
I thought that was a masterclass in telling journalists where to shove it. FYI, this is happening because she is one of the MPs investigating corruption and phone hacking by journalists… They are trying to smear her.
