Well that was an interesting weekend. I attended the New Statesman party on Sunday night in Bournemouth, and to those of you interested in politics and the media, quite a few faces would have been familiar.
I had a quick chat with Paul Routledge, Daily Mirror and New Statesman regular, Peter Oborne, Spectator guy, and Tony Benn, former Labour minister. And there was some kind of documentary going on with BBC2 filming assistants to MPs, so I ended up being filmed for a good ten minutes. Argh.
Gordon Browne turned up briefly, I spotted Martha Kearney of Newsnight, Andrew Marr of the BBC and Daily Telegraph, Lauren Booth from the New Statesman, Charlie Whelan, that spin-doctor dude and a host of other people I recognised but didn’t know their names.
All in all a good night, I got quite pissed though.
