Ed Vaizey's Three Hour Lunch with Tracey Emin

Just got off the phone a few minutes ago with Ed Vaizey. Guido called him via the Maitre’d of Scott’s of Mayfair.  When he came to the phone he demanded to know which table Guido was sitting at.  Alas Ed, some of us have work to do.

His lunch partner – Tracey Emin – must be very entertaining.  Guido makes it that he is into his third hour of lunch since a co-conspirator alerted Guido.  The call went like this:

Ed What table are you at? I was just bemoaning that MPs can’t get away with anything.

Guido You do know there is a recession on?  Get back to work.

EV I am going back to vote.

GF Can you hear the division bell in Mayfair?

EV I know what time the vote is…

GF Look it is alright for me to take a three hour lunch, I pay your wages.

EV It was not a three hour lunch.

GF Get back to work.

Just another tough day in the life of a hardworking public servant…

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
