Team Osborne Tell Their Backstories

It’s Team Osborne day in Birmingham today. And we’re getting a lot of back stories from the Chancellor’s loyal lieutenants. Sajid Javid told a previously unhead story about being the son of an immigrant bus drive who became a banker and then joined the cabinet. Liz Truss talked about her lefty academic parents taking her on protest marches and Matt Hancock lifted the lid on life growing up on tough front line of the internet revolution at his mum’s internet business. It certainly seemed like a coordinated effort for Team Osborne to show some ankle. Curious timing; incidentally Boris arrives at 6. 

Guido preferred Saj’s tale from growing up that he told to the Tech Central fringe event last night:

“I stuck in one of the holes. Nothing happened. So I stuck it in the other hole, and bang, I went flying across the room.”

For context, he was talking about his neon screwdriver

Quote of the Day

Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…

“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
