Oh dear. Davos isn’t what it used to be if this year’s guest list is anything to go by. The annual gathering of the global elite in Switzerland is getting underway yet a number of world leaders – including Donald Trump – have decided to give it a miss.
Still, at least the People are being represented. Mr S was amused to hear an interview on Radio 4’s Today programme this morning. As the campaign for a second referendum – or so-called People’s Vote – steps up, People’s Vote chairman Roland Rudd – brother of Amber Rudd – appeared on the airwaves to give an interview on the issue. Only as the presenter made clear, Rudd was unable to join the team in the London studio, instead he spoke from the global summit:
‘Roland Rudd joins us live from Davos’
Who ever said the People’s Vote campaign was run by a group of elites?
