Sorry - I have only just got back to my computer after a night in London.
Half a gallon of fine ale with an old colleague before being royally entertained and informed by the Stockholm Network:
I was pleased to hear Stephen Pollard defend the use of ridicule and insult by blogs against politicians as a valuable part of the body politic, reacquainting them with real hustings heckles, unlike the stage managed photo-ops they are used to now.
And then on for dinner with The Devil until he poured me into a taxi as I had become a disgrace and was giggling on the floor at our neighbouring diner's very expensive Steak Tatar which resembled nothing more than a tin of cattomeat tipped onto a plate. Oh well that's another restaurant I won't be allowed back into again.
Still I haven't missed any political stories, have I?
