Just slipped out of a packed Spectator party to see Fraser Nelson, the new Speccie editor, standing to attention on a blue carpet. “Where are you going?” he asks an exiting Guido. Somebody has to go report on the Telegraph party is Guido’s retort to his now satisfied smile. Bizarrely scheduled against the premier party (Guido saw Telegraph hacks at the Speccie party) it shows just how out of touch the Telegraph is with the party it once had a monopoly on reporting.
A familiar face approached as Guido exited, he extended his hand, Guido shook his hand, slurred a “hello”, and smiled. God knows what Fraser thought as his star guest, David Cameron, moved down the blue carpet towards him.
