dog.



’Once he came back from a holiday in Australia, where they have loads of

hot-dog stands, with a scheme to set up his own hot-dog business,’

Weston recalls. But he suspects Anderson’s terrible sense of direction

’He was always getting lost on the way to meetings. Once he drove me

’Mike took me on in 1991 when he was client sales manager at The Mail on

Sunday. He can do absolutely anything if he puts his mind to it.’
