A question of priorities in the Fawkes household saw us Catholics flipping pancakes on Shrove Tuesday instead of down at Vinopolis with the Opus Dave crowd – despite receiving two invites from CCHQ. Baby Ms Fawkes (seemingly fully recovered) appreciated the effort – Guido arrived as everyone was leaving so can’t report the Cameroonie mood there. Thought I saw Iain Dale strutting out into the night, so perhaps he will have a report.
Sans alcohol, Guido jumped back on his scooter as confused Tories sought taxis in deepest darkest Bermondsey sarf o’ the river
. Speeding through the night to Foyles where the Taxpayer’s Alliance
had kept a single glass of champagne aside. Bump into bloggers like Mr and Mrs Wat Tyler
, Tim Montgomerie
and the ever rockin’ Andrew Ian Dodge
amongst many others.
Consensus here was that if Cameron is looking for a fight with the right, he is not going to get one. “We should let him fight and win or lose the election on his own terms”, “More than anything we want him to beat Brown”, “I don’t know what he is about, but he seems to be making progress” and “What is going on with your beard?” were the kind of comments people said to Guido.
UDATE : Dale does have the dope.
