Dolly Back on the London Scene

Derek Draper disappeared from the face of the earth after his exit in disgrace from LabourList. He was spotted doing a bit of canvassing on election day and was entertained by Gloria De Piero on the Commons terrace a few weeks back. Now it seems old Dolly is trying to make a bit of comeback on the London scene. He was clocked last week at a YouGovStone networking event, the sort where some pay through the nose to mingle. Seeing Draper standing in corner, alone, a co-conspirator saw his moment:

CC: Derek, how are you, big fan…
DD: Oh yeah… cheers… You Labour?
CC: No Tory… obviously.

Needless to say cards were not swapped…

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
