Today in a sentence... a long lie-in and freedom.
Hit the room service and didn't make it to lunch. Instead arose late and headed for the blogger love in with Dale, Dizzy, Guido and the Devil... and even Nadine Dorries. Was a great little celebration of the blogsphere and an interesting chat.
The next few hours are slightly blurry but the TB hit the pub before emerging yawning in time for Dave speaking the Scottish Tories and preparing to hear Billy Hague at the Conservative Future 10 year anniversary party...
Just warming up for it with a drink or two with Guido and errr.... cough.... Alex Hilton.
Interviewed him for TBtv... watch this space...
Quote of the day: Overheard at the social action project... "Please can I have the shadow cabinet timetable, what's the point of me being here if they're not?"

Russia has condemned the left-wing and inherently ‘un-capitalist’ intervention of the American government in the free market after the state takeover of a number of US banks and mortgage companies.
‘It’s goddamn Communism, period!’ said a spokesman for the Kremlin. Once them politicians start trying to run the banks and markets, them no-good Commies will be taking over everything. Why do you think there are so many billionaires in Russia? Because of the very economic freedoms that the United Soviet States of America are trying to stop.’
However in Washington, the lurch to the left continued. Wearing a little furry hat and a lot of medals, Comrade George Bush waved rather feebly on the balcony of the Glorious People’s White House and later gave a seven hour speech demanding more state control of the financial markets and for his cabinet to have bushier eye-brows. ‘All power to the glorious Soviets!’ he declared ‘We will strengthen our base in Communist Cuba!’
However politcal analysts have said that it is over simplistic to describe the current situation as a straight forward reversal of the last Cold War. ‘I, mean it’s not as if America has invaded Afghanistan or anything. Oh, hang on…’
