A group of CCHQ staff working the weekend shift yesterday went off to buy lunch in Westminster. All looking very Cameron style wearing trendy shirts sans ties etc. As they go to enter CCHQ Stephen Twigg says “you look like Labour students” and tags on the end of the group only to be stopped by the security staff.
The wonk-chief of the Foreign Policy Centre was supposed to be speaking at a Labour Students event around the corner.
Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:
“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
