Levy Sweats it Out

Just got back from popping in on Sleazy Levy’s book launch for A Question of Honour. Guido doesn’t usually do the London political scene cocktail circuit, however for Levy, well, Guido thought he would make an exception. The venue (Daunts in Marylebone) was not air-conditioned and the sweat was dripping off the guests. Guido didn’t waste much time hanging about.

The place was filled to gills with hacks and Guido had to push a few out of the way to make it to the drinks (sorry Emily). Admittedly Guido left early and the only MP Guido spotted was Charles Clarke. Perhaps the PM or the Blairs will drop in later, or perhaps not…

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
