Christmas – the time for peace on earth and goodwill to all men. It’s also the time of year for giving. Except that is if you’re Clive Lewis. The Labour MP – and sometime Corbynista – has managed to raise eyebrows in Parliament over his attempt at a Christmas bash.
While the bulk of Christmas drinks events in Parliament come with warm wine, crisps and the odd G n T, Lewis’s Christmas bash could be described as less generous on the catering front. Mr S understands that guests invited to his drinks this week were asked to bring… their own refreshments and snacks.
Still, it’s merrier than anything the Leader’s Office are planning. Jeremy Corbyn is yet to send out an invite for Christmas drinks for hacks.
