The oddest thing about Lembit Opik

Text settings

Do read Lesley White’s sympathetic profile of Lembit Opik in today’s Times. There is, though, no getting away from the fact that Opik has some strange views and none stranger than this:

“He talks about the transference of psychic energy, how his crossness that our Virgin train was late had put a spring in the step of the woman who later showed us to a meeting at Shrewsbury hospital.”
