While today's political climate might not be great for the country, the watering holes of Westminster are certainly doing okay out of the tumult. Mr S hears that Liam Fox was in a celebratory mood on Wednesday night after being appointed Secretary of State for International Trade. Steerpike is informed that the MP stayed close to a table loaded with the House of Commons' finest fizz. What's more Mr S hears a whisper his good old pal Adam Werritty was on hand to help Fox celebrate.

At a time when too many politicians are gloom-mongering after Brexit, Mr S is pleased to hear the good doctor has lost no time in his new job: raising morale in his party, toasting the health of the new Prime Minister and telling the world that Britain has plenty to celebrate.
