VIP LibDems Live Conference Lobbyist High Life

The LibDem conference should by all accounts be an excuse for Clegg and co to distance themselves from their Tory counterparts, but it looks like they will be partying like the 1% next week. While Tories will remain under a strict champagne ban, Ashdown and Farron will be chugging kir, champagne and canapés thanks to spinmeisters Guide Consultancy. VIPs are being invited to drink with the grandees in an invite-only Brighton penthouse.

The lobbyists claim to have “stocked up on some great wine, not the usual conference fare” – presumably as a thank you to the LibDems for their abject failure to introduce lobbying reforms thus far, despite all the promises. Bottoms up.

    It’s what evil dastardly Space Aliens shout when, thinking victory is theirs, they are outmaneuvered by the USS Enterprise as it rises out of its hiding place in a nebulae, firing all its photon torpedoes.

    “No! It cannot be! Damn you, Kir..” *boom*

    Handycock ( Teen Fondler) says:

    I would go to the conference but am not doing as my Mrs won’t let me, she thinks I will be off shagging, which is a relief in a way, as I will not have to go to any meetings as an MP and expose the fact that I am an ignorant twat who does not know what he is talking about. Boaz.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
