Second Tory Minister on President’s Club Guest List

Fun-loving Tory minister Richard Harrington was due to attend the notorious President’s Club Dinner and sit on the same table as Nadhim Zahawi, Guido can reveal. Harrington’s office confirmed he was invited but didn’t attend. A spokesman told Guido:

“He definitely wasn’t there.”

Asked where he was, no alibi was forthcoming. Not sure why he was on the guest list if he hadn’t RSVP’d. Lucky escape…

Quote of the Day

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
