Tony's Coo Ca Choo

It is possible that Lord Levy would not be at the epicentre of the loans-for-peerages scandal if Alvin Stardust had not topped the charts with My Coo Ca Choo in 1974.

The singer, an improbable confection of false sideburns, dyed black hair and leather, was one of the first acts signed by Michael Levy’s record company. The hit laid the foundations for the rise of “Mr Cashpoint” and Tony Blair’s election victory two decades later.

Now you know who to blame!
