The name of brand specialist outfit CLK is reverberating in high places. The company happens to share a similar telephone number to one of the nation’s great film directors.
The number is in fact just one digit out from that of Michael Winner, the Sunday Times’ restaurant critic extraordinaire and director of masterpieces such as Death Wish and Dirty Weekend.
One caller trying to reach CLK got through to the bumptious director by mistake. Winner informed the caller that he was sick and tired of hearing of this CLK, and who the hell were they, anyway? Maybe someone from the brand specialists should buy him lunch. Winner’s number is 0171 603 7272.
