Cameron’s party

David Cameron's party last night was buzzing, well-attended and full of gossip. He was being teased about Gordon Brown claiming to have "quietly" erected solar panels in his Fife house. Turns out Cameron had even more quietly had solar panels in North Kensington for a couple of years now, before the windmill. Hence the green wars continue.

And good to see Cameron leave his own party to go to Lady Thatcher's reception - for my money, always the best party of the Christmas season. And not without drama this year. After The Lady left, Hugh Scully from the Antiques Roadshow fell down the outside stairs, was tended to by Dr Liam Fox and helped home by Alan Titchmarsh. 

By the way, the main question occupying Tories right now is what they should do to break 45%. Do any Coffee Housers have some advice for Cameron in 2008? His team read the site regularly, so I'm sure they'd be all ears....
