Honeymoon Couple at the Speccie Party

Cameron and Clegg made their entrance together to the Speccie’s summer party last night, either as a statement or out of convenience. Cameron was at ease among his own people. Clegg looked a little glum, like a newly wed wife who realises too late that her husband keeps company of which she really doesn’t  approve.

The Speccie – slogan: “Champagne for the Brain” – provided champagne in a straight glass to one of Dave’s minders, which Guido could have sworn was passed furtively to the PM, no iPhone snap will be on the Mirror’s front-page this time. Picture evidence implies Bucks Fizz…

Dave worked the room with good grace. Clegg looked uncomfortable with the editorial descendants of the weekly magazine which called for the deportation of the Tolpuddle Martyr’s children. He seemed a bit stiff among his new progressive friends like Kelvin MacKenzie, Taki, Liddle, Janet Daley, Fraser Nelson plus allies like Andy Coulson and Lord Ashcroft. Danny “Beaker” Alexander was in his element, enjoying being slapped on the back by political adults and congratulated on his fiscal restraint. Beaker’s new SpAd Julia Goldsworthy was wearing a demure little black number which would not look out of place at the upcoming £4,500-a-table Tory Black and White Ball.

Clegg really should be like his junior colleagues, and learn how to lie back and enjoy coalition…
