The Independent’s gossip column reports that Labour is having some trouble recruiting celebrity talent to us annual fundraising dinner:

“Party press officers insist that they have a "surprise singing performer" to compound [Eddie Izard’s] credentials. Who could it be? The usual cast of characters (Mick Hucknall, the Bee Gees, Heather Small) refuse to respond to Pandora's advances. Leona Lewis replies (her manager Simon is a good friend of the PM) but only to issue a denial.”

So, who would be the most suitable musical act? I’m thinking Roxette singing ‘It’s over now’. But I’m sure Coffee Housers can come up with a better suggestion. A bottle of the usual champagne for the best one.
