Long memories

Sorry I wasn’t blogging yesterday. Events, dear boy…

To a constituency event today in the constituency, a family fun day organised by the Greater Pollok Integration Network at King George V playing fields in Kennishead. Unexpectedly asked to say a few words from the main stage; actually I wasn’t there in any official capacity, more because Ronnie and Reggie are bouncy castle addicts and they promised to hurt us if we didn’t take them.

As I was coming off the stage, a well-known local community activist collared me and said: “You and I don’t agree on much…” (Uh-oh, thought I) “but I totally agreed with what you were saying in the papers last week.”

I’ve been getting this a lot. Labour MPs in particular have concluded that any colleague who gets done over by the Daily Mail must, by definition, be A Good Thing. I recently had a conversation with a former member of the cabinet who still hasn’t forgiven the Mail for the Zinoviev letter.

  1. And what ‘events dear boy’ resulted in the tuesday promo here for your appearance on this week’s Question Time being mysteriously pulled after a couple of hours? Followers of ‘And another thing’ have a right to know if you are being leant on by the party machine.

    ‘Free the Marsham Street One’ – hmm, not the catchiest of slogans.
