Moggy isn't wrong, she's on £250k apparently, before you even consider Tory backhanders.

Aren't most conferences just a chance for the press to get drunk while pretending to work anyway?

Ah, but they're also the best places to get Boris tea towels, or Keir Starmer coffee cups.

There was one time, when Easter Cleggs were big sellers.

Out of curiosity, do you have any political items in your collection of stuff?

Apart from autographs, i don't really collect political stuff, got a labour pin badge once at a market stall with 1997 on it, but that's about it.

I have a red mug that Tony Benn was drinking from at a talk. My step grandmother stole it after a talk because she was such a fan.

A "Tory MP" has been arrested on suspicion of rape according to the BBC who are reporting tabloid reports. Not sure if the name will be released tomorrow, but seems odd that an MP would get anonymity at this point.

They can't be named while the police are investigating whether to charge, as naming could hamper that investigation.
