Out on the party scene, Mr S enjoyed BIS minister Matt Hancock’s description of his job to the Institute of Directors bash:
‘Working at BIS is a lot a like sending a telegram. You have to speak in short sentences. With a clear message. With everything going through an increasingly irrelevant and obsolete Cable.’
Boomtish, though Hancock was quick to stress that since he attends cabinet now, he doesn’t have to clear everything through mean old Vince. A point he felt must be stressed.
One joke that is already getting old is anyone standing up at an event, without notes, and making a laboured attempt to ‘remember to mention the deficit’. I’m looking at you Mr Duncan Smith.
The party continues….
