No Swinging Party

A croaky Michael Howard gave a non-speech at the Policy Exchange party. He looked unwell, and said little – the medication had obviously kicked in, because he said he was “increasingly convinced that with your help we will win.” He was received politely by the crowd, but nobody believed it. He left shortly afterwards. The Tories were mostly looking old and weary, even the young ones. Yeo looked bored, Redwood looked placid, Andrew Neil was gregarious, Nicholas Boles, Policy Exchange’s director, was all mwaah mwaahing and dahling like the luvvie that he is… I had half-a-dozen cosmos and left when I realised it was going to be no Fever Party.
