Lovelorn lefties of the world can relax. There’s finally a solution to that age-old nightmare of discovering that the person you share a pillow with has deal-breakingly different views to you on taxation. I’ve just been handed this flyer for the Leftwing Dating website , ‘dedicated to uniting all singles passionate about creating a better world’.
To comfort any nervous would-be suitor, the picture on the leaflet and the one on the site itself couldn’t be clearer. The luscious leftwing lady pictured is wearing a red jumper: she’s definitely a lefty! And the couple are clinking two glasses of bubbly: this site clearly also accommodates champagne socialists. If you’re looking for an event where you can really ratchet up the romance, it also lists ‘key dates’ for lefties looking for love, which includes the TUC mass London demo on 20 October. Perhaps the way to really seal the deal would be to present your date with a copy of Ed Balls’ speech, on sale outside the conference hall today for £2.Tags: Labour conference 2012
