“Westminster Correspondents’ Dinner” Bruises Lobby Egos

The Ladies and Gentleman of the Lobby have degenerated into a gaggle of squabbling hairdressers because of a small scale attempt to recreate Washington’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The respective chairmen of the Lobby and the Press Gallery – James Chapman of the Mail and Chris Hope of the Telegraph – wrote to all three hundred hacks covering Parliament to tell them most of them will not be invited to their exclusive black tie dinner in January. All three party leaders are pencilled in to attend the grandiose “Westminster Correspondents’ Dinner 2014″, sponsored by Bloomberg and to be held in the cramped Members’ Dining Room:

“Once spaces have been allocated for guests and sponsors, there are 53 pairs of tickets available. This means that not everyone will be able to come who wants to. If the dinner is an over-subscribed success – which we very much hope it will be – we’re looking at moving to a larger venue in 2015. There is no easy way to divide 53 pairs of tickets between 300 political journalists. After extensive discussion, a sub-group of the Press Gallery committee, which has been set up to look at the best way forward, has decided to allocate one pair of tickets each to the 23 organisations listed below.

Daily and Sunday Express and Daily Star
Daily Mail, Mail on Line and Mail on Sunday
Daily and Sunday Mirror and Sunday People
Daily and Sunday Telegraph
Evening Standard
Financial Times
Guardian, Guardian Unlimited and Observer
Independent and Independent on Sunday
The Sun and the Sun on Sunday
The Times and Sunday Times
Regional lobby
Dods
BBC TV
BBC Radio
BBC Regions
ITN
Channel 4 News
Five News
ITV Regions
Press Association
Sky News
Reuters
Politics.co.uk”

So with just one pair of tickets per news organisation, all hell has broken loose as Sunday and Daily titles bicker and squabble over who gets to go. The only amusement for the warring inkies has been seeing the massively over represented BBC staff incandescent that they have been given just six tickets to share between dozens. Needless to say there are a lot of very bruised egos about.

Miserable deputies and lowly scribes who have missed out are placated with:

“The only comfort we can offer is that the disappointment will be spread widely. There will be losers in every organisation.” 

That’s should ease the pain for the poor hard done by lambs.

UPDATE: The BBC’s James Landale has been “elected” as the new chairman of the Press Gallery.

    Just look up DSM-IV and Axis II Cluster B. There are 4 in this cluster, APD (includes psychopathy), NPD, HPD and BPD. This is the US system. The European (WHO) system is ICD-10 but is much the same. Oddly NPD figure more prominently in the USA system…….

    You will find much on this matter on the web. These disorders cause much misery.

    It is not my theory. My contribution is merely to suggest (i.e conjecture) a higher prevalence in one group, and that’s a statistical hypothesis. It does not stereotype the whole group. What I think does not matter. It’s either more prevalent or it isn’t. I suspect it is. There have been instances where extreme measures have been taken against an entire group e.g. cows/sheep when a disorder is found, e.g. ‘foot and mouth’. This is what worries some people I suspect? These PDs do not appear to be contagious. If anything they run in families and have high heritability, i.e risk.

    Well, those scroungers, and the scientists and certain sections of the Green industry, but the deeper political issue the developing nations have is that they see the end of this as being a return to the old days of unfair competition.

    The Green agenda has distorted many things in their favor, enabling rapid growth rates and the ability to catch up with developed nations, mainly because the developed world has been either static or in reverse gear owing to the Green agenda.

    Here one sees the mask slipping. The Green agenda was only ever about economics and politics, especially once it was noticed that the previous worrying warming trends had reversed.

    Anyone tracking the business dealings of Al Gore should have realized that the jig was up after he sold off Current TV to Al Jaz.

    @BW: Duplicitous implies double cross, and you are correct.

    Of note also is the simple fact that Greenpeace / WWF etc. are all against man, and against man improving his standard of living and developing. Yet, the people in developing nations were told that by virtue of developed nations cutting back to save the environment, they were advancing forward by doing nothing.

    In real material terms, they have advanced, but all advances in developing countries have had absolutely nothing to do with the Green agenda.

    Why is the media not celebrating the improvements in global sanitation and reliable, fresh running water but instead complaining about idiots being rightfully imprisoned for breaking the laws of a foreign sovereign nation ?

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.”
