Docked in Brum


Guido docked his yacht* late last night within spitting distance of the main Hyatt conference hotel.  The river police noisily erecting a security barrier on the canal woke him up this morning. Fortunately the floating Guinness-palace is now inside the security cordon. If the Prime Minister looks down from his hotel suite window he’ll be able to easily identify the boat – it is the one with the 5-foot-wide Jolly Roger pirate flag fluttering to the aft.

Sky News viewers who thought Guido looked less than cheerful (above) on Adam Boulton with Iain Dale and Tim Montgomerie this morning shouldn’t read anything into it. It was merely caffeine deprivation…

*Not too familiar with nautical terminology, does a barge qualify as a yacht?
