Warsi Sinks at Titanic Event Party Chairman Booed by Tory Councillors and Members

This morning’s Indy has another instalment of the Don’t Sack Sayeeda Warsi Campaign. Though the rhetoric is toned down from previous efforts, she is uncompromising in her attacks on the right of the party. Oliver Wright has been on one of the Tory Chairman’s tour of the sticks, but fails to mention on particular incident from Friday night – Pendle Conservatives Titanic-themed black tie Spring Ball. The champagne was flowing and the dinner menu was the same as the Titanic on it’s fateful night. What could possibly go wrong…

Sources in nautical dress say Warsi was booed and heckled by the crowd that included sitting Tory councillors. Party insiders described this iceberg as a “robust exchange of views with one table” during the Q&A when Warsi was defending the budget. Her spokesman tells Guido “in retrospect maybe it wasn’t the best idea to go to a Titantic themed event on Friday the 13th…”

UPDATE: Tory sources are adamant that Warsi was only meant to be there for an hour but despite this exchange left 90 minutes later than scheduled. There seems to be some debate about who was being booed by the northern Tories – Warsi or Osborne…
