5/11 Competition, Winner

The competition closed at midday and the entries out-numbered Malcolm Rifkind’s nominations, but there was no avalanche of gossip – which makes sense – you would not be reading a political gossip blog if you knew all the gossip. What was received was interesting, certainly defamatory and possibly in some cases untrue.

Andrew Marr is not a parliamentarian, but I am pleased to know about his predilections – however the rules mean that entry will not count. So Guido has decided that Renegade Liberal is the winner and will I hope be reviewing the play for the blog on Friday.

Chichester Festival Theatre is showing 5/11 until 8 September. Tickets can be bought online, more information here. Thanks to Sarah Wallis @ CFT for the tickets.

Tip offs: 0709 284 0531

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
