Is the tide turning for Odey the Brexiteer? - part 28

Crispin Odey is falling in with the hedgies at Polygon by calling for a higher offer from 21st Century Fox or its new owner - the Walt Disney Company. Ben Martin, a former colleague from my time at The Daily Telegraph and now a reporter at Reuters, managed to get the old buffer to talk about it on the record today. I have pasted Ben's piece below in case you missed it.

Now, when Betaville obtained the Polygon letter that was circulating around the market on Saturday this website put in call to Crispin as the veteran hedge fund manager said in the summer the £10.75 offer was starting to look rather "mean", suggesting he was going to vote against the 21st Century Fox bid.

But for some reason Crispin didn't answer Betaville's call on Saturday. I wonder why?..
