Last night’s Public Affairs News awards in Whitehall was, as usual, an orgy of back-slapping and smooching for the lobbying industry.

Mr S chuckled when the compere for the evening, Kevin Maguire, had to hand over an award to the Taxpayers’ Alliance - a bête noire of the Mirror’s tribune of the people. Maguire never misses the chance to bash the TPA on Twitter and in print; but he was on his best behaviour while handing out the gong. The TPA won for its ‘Mash the Beer Tax’ campaign. Our Kev grudgingly admitted: ‘It’s the only tax cut I’ve ever supported’.
