Propeller-Head Wonk Watch: There but for the grace of God goes Guido. Stephen Twigg fresh from wandering mistakenly into CCHQ, wandered out of the Foreign Policy Centre christmas party and fell arse-over-tit in front of a copper. Hence being charged with “drunk and incapable in a public place” rather than drunk and disorderly. When Guido was last arrested for being drunk and disorderly a tramp told me to admit to being drunk but deny being disorderly. He said I would get off, before I could further question him on this ingenious stratagem an officer called “Mr Winston Churchill”. “Oh, that’s me” said my new legal counsel, before going up to the court.
Binge drinking Twigg is on Labour’s preferred candidates list and no doubt therefore supports 24-hour drinking.
Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…
“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
