11.15am Sloppy Tiffins.*

Pride? At a Conservative event?

That will be Homophobic Pride then.

True Belle said...

Interested to hear about the Women's Tory fringe groups Iain, can you report back on that.

I thought that women's Tory groups had all collapsed really because of the misogynist attitude of the Tory main frame?

Old Holborn said...


Slightly confused as to my the Association of Chief Police Officers, a private limited company, are at Manchester. Care to ask them?

English First said...

Any chance that this conference, or you, will address the Treason committed by the Heath Government in 1972?

Jimmy said...

"Pride? At a Conservative event?"

Has Kaminski RSVP'd yet?

Malcolm Redfellow said...

Will there be time, perhaps at the Pride meeting, to applaud Stephen Fry et al. over their letter to David Cameron?

Joe Public said...

I note there's a "Conservative Women's Organisation Fringe"

Is there a Mens Fringe too?

@ Despairing Liberal

How do you feel about the alumni of Fettes, or St Pauls?

Unsworth - see my Diary for tomorrow for views on dreadful oinks from the lower sort of school you mention.
