Video: Dolly and Watson Sing the Blues

A Friday treat for you from last night –  an “absolutely totally brilliant” butchering of a Dylan classic “Forever Young” by our old friend:

Despite Gordon Brown saying  there was “no place in public life” for him, Draper is back in the fold and singing his heart out as his old chum Tom Watson looks on at last night’s fundraiser for Ed Miliband’s Political Adviser Polly Billington’s shoo-in selection bid for the Thurrock constituency. As he can’t be seen in shot, presumably McBride is holding the camera…

With the Labour bloggers taking their lines from direct meetings with Ed Miliband, Political Scrapbook doing the red-raggy ones and Left Foot Forward and LabourList parroting press releases, it is as if Draper’s vision has finally been achieved. Only after he got out of the way…

UPDATE: Amusing snippets coming in from last night from all sorts of places. Apparently Polly and Ed Balls sung Endless Love and Dolly did three songs. Who knew Like a Rolling Stone had thirteen verses…

      Is Cameron going to stop immigration being debated? says:

      But the deputy leader of the House, David Heath, said: ‘That was never the intention of the petition site.
      ‘It is a mechanism for allowing members of the public to express an interest in a matter.’ He insisted that the 100,000 threshold only made a petition eligible for debate.
      It comes as a petition calling for Britain’s soaring population to be kept under control is growing at the rate of one backer every three seconds.

          David Cameron is the worst Prime Minister ever ! says:

          No, but increased housing costs, knackered and broken infrastructure that crumbles under the weight of immigrants, reduced wages, reduced employment possibilities, overcrowded streets, trains, shops.. that angers me.

          It angers all of us. Except you and Camoron, obviously.

          I Remember You Hoo says:

          Billy, an open door immigration policy and an overly generous benefit, healthcare and pension system, is a recipe for social collapse.
          A country can have either a welfare system or open borders, if it has both, it will destroy itself.

          Londoner says:

          I have no fear of competition. However, there is insufficient space and housing. The most recent incomers have NOT been beneficial, they have placed severe stress on the existing housing stocks, public resources and services, none of which they have contriubuted to. There is also plenty of evidence that they are driving down wages.

    There fact that there are people in the Labour movement who are still prepared to welcome deviant tossers like Draper into the fold demonstrates just how out of touch and unelectable they are. Draper should be mopping toilets in prisons for the rest of his life, not hobnobbing with the Labour Party.
