The Mayor of London has been upstaged this year as the rebel darling of the delegates. Noting his new rival for attention – Nigel Farage – Boris charmed conference goers by regaining a tale about Mrs Farage:
’I was so flattered and amused that I almost said yes – and then I thought, no, no!’
Uncharacteristic restraint there, but I’m assured he was discussing an invitation to UKIP conference.
As the conference season draws to a close the last of the parties go head to head – not the political ones but media knees ups. Last night the Telegraph’s bash clashed with Sky News, though full marks to the broadcasters for their Lynton Lollipops:
See, the PMs attack dog is a sweetie really.
Elsewhere Tory party chairman Grant Shapps is doing his bit for hardworking people. He sent one hardworking aide out to get him a Big Mac and bring it to his room. Oh the trappings of power.Tags: Boris Johnson, Lynton Crosby, Nigel Farage, Party conferences, Sky News, UKIP
