Lobby News

It seems, and not for the first time, that Guido Fawkes has caused trouble in Parliament. The Chairman of the Press Gallery, Rob Gibson has complained about an inappropriately attired guest attending the Press Gallery lunch. “I don’t want to sound like a grumpy old man,” he began, improbably, “but I’ve been shocked by the number of complaints I’ve received.” He fears it may be the thin end of the wedge – next time, it might be John Prescott turning up in a thong – and so an email is going out to all members of the gallery. In response Frank Prenesti was to close today’s Lobby briefing by announcing that members should attend future briefings in their national football strips and shorts.

Guido would like to officially complain about an inappropriately long rambling introduction by Rob Gibson which went on for almost as long as Christopher Meyer’s actual speech. Perhaps the assembled political journalists might possibly already be familiar with the former PMOS and current chairman of the Press Complaints Commission. Guido was shocked at the number of people who warned him about the long introductions. “Ladies and gentlemen I give you…” might suffice. Guido will be sending out an email to that effect.
