Talking of Rough Men…

“The Retro Bar is situated close to The Strand and features on the Gay scene.” thus the venue for Recess Monkey’s party was off Guido’s usually beaten track. Despite binge drinking pints of Guinness, Guido avoided total humiliation by leaving before being dragged on the Karaoke stage. The PPC for Canterbury demonstrated his astounding prowess as a singer, politics’ gain is the stage’s loss, Recess would have made a wonderful cantor.

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
