Lord McAlpine: BBC 'should have called me'

They could have saved themselves a lot of agonising, and money actually, if they had just made that telephone call. They should have called me and I would have told them exactly what they learned later on - that it was complete rubbish and that I had only ever been to Wrexham once in my life... It gets into your bones, it makes you angry, and that's extremely bad for you to be angry, and it gets into your soul and you just think there is something wrong with the world.

– Lord McAlpine speaking to BBC Radio 4
