Are the Tories a little bitter about Ed’s conference speech last week? Well, if their annual conference stunt is anything to go by they’re up for a bar fight.
The Red Ed Lion Pub has opened in Manchester serving up such comedy capers as ‘Miliband Brown Ale’, ‘Extra Strong Union Ale’ and ‘David’s Bitter’. Party fund-raisers will be hoping that the delegates tuck in, and they’ll be on hand on to take donations, like modern day versions of Napoleonic era army recruiters conscripting drunks in pubs.
Mr Steerpike will report back on how they taste when he arrives at the conference; but he suspects that they might be a little flat.Tags: beer, Conference stunts, Conservative conference 2013, Ed Miliband
