Tonight's happy agenda
I will rush home after that and get changed into my "posh" gear for the North West Lib Dem Parliamentary Circle dinner in Sale, where the guest speaker is Britain's youngest MP, Jo Swinson. I am attending as the guest of fellow Prestwich Lib Dem Cllr Andrew Garner, who is a vice-chair of the regional party and as such gets to go to these things rather more regularly than I do. It's posh food (a change from my regular Friday night trip to Armstrong's...) and requiures a dinner suit. Thus I made an emergency trip to purchase a new one earlier this week when it became clear that the one I had no longer in any way resembled the shape of my body. I only hope I managed to detach all the labels that dangled from it... Appearing in front of such a select band of dignitaries with a price tag plainly visible is not the impression I wish to give...
