Dimbleby in the Bullingdon?

Did Boris Johnson really out David Dimbleby as a Bullingdon Club member on last night's Question Time? Paul Waugh caught it, and you can hear Johnson's irate comment on the playback - go to 54.45 in on the video and you'll hear Boris say that "we Bullingdon men stick together" and then "he was in the Bullingdon you know!" And again, much more clearly, at 56.45!! Dimbleby didn't deny it!

Yes, though Dimbleby maintains it was much more genteel in his time, nothing to be embarrassed about.

How reassuring - I was having difficulty visualising the gentlemanly Dimbleby trashing restaurants!
