Feeling the Love

Guido was beginning to get a little disappointed at the lack of vitriol against him at his first ever Labour conference visit, though that soon changed as the sun went down and the beer started flowing last night. Popping in to pay his respects to the great and good  at last night’s Guardian party, Guido’s face to face encounters with some blog favourites are worth recollecting. It would be fair to say Luciana Berger isn’t a happy reader and doesn’t find jokes about the Ferry ‘cross the Mersey funny. On the other hand  MumsNet’s mum-in-chief Justine Thompson confessed she voted for Guido #1 in the Total Politics blog awards. It’s the blog they love to hate…

Hugh Grant added some stardust to the affair, though Guido was a little sad not to get his moment and a chance to chat about the Cayman Islands, hypocrisy and hedge funds with either Polly or Alan Rusbridger. Security on the door was tight, and no sign of Draper. Perhaps after it took twenty minutes to argue his way in to the New Statesman party the night before he decided not to bother even trying…

UPDATE: A co-conspirator points reminds Guido that the funniest moment at the Guardian reception was watching Dr Death (Evan Harris) look daggers at Chris Bryant when he spirited Hugh Grant away from him. Later on Dawn Butler took pictures of Hugh with Emily Thornberry. Hugh has form for lively black girls, so Dawn probably thought she stood a chance. Not with Bryant and Evan there!
