Where's the Charlie?

The combination of a hangover and Clegg seems to have got the better of Charles Kennedy. Citing a “late train” he pulled out of various events yesterday and was nowhere to be seen at this morning’s Guardian fringe event. And now thanks to the irreplaceable EyeSpy.MP we learn that Charlie boy is already on the way back to London without sticking around for a his leader’s speech. Hardly a ringing endorsement…

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
