An open bar @ Stringfellows


Hunter had a most enjoyable night at The Wardour, a Stringfellow's bar, courtesy of the Young Britons' Foundation. The organisation was established in July 2003 to help develop the talents of young conservative-minded political activists in Britain. They help to identify, recruit, train and then place "small 'c'" conservatives within the public policy process.

Their aim is to help to train the next generation of candidates, for all levels of public office, as well as those interested in working in the media and public life generally. They want to ensure firstly that there will be a next generation of conservatives, and secondly that they are equipped with the skills and the knowledge to be able to articulate a centre-right alternative.

So, the YBF's May Day Bash (to celebrate capitalism!), was sponsored by the great man himself - Peter Stringfellow.

The venue was stylish, the girls charming and the drinks were flowing. Hunter could not have asked for better company and fellow quests included: Guido Fawkes (whom Hunter had a long chat with), The Croydonian, The Darker Side of Bridget Jones, Tom Mason and a host of other familiar faces.

The guest speakers were Jonathan Isaby from the Daily Telegraph's Spy column, Shipley MP Philip Davies and the night's host, PF.

A special thank you to Shane Greer (a Tottenham member!), his colleagues at the FBF and to Mr. Stringfellow - a good loyal Conservative - for a delightful evening. Those chilled G&T's were perfect!

It was a laugh, wasn't it? I see from Caroline's blog that it got a bit messy after I left. Hey, and indeed ho.

Thought you had retired to Eastbourne, Mr. N? Tom, how late did you stay out? Any gossip?

Pleased to see that Croydonian can still pass for a 'Young Briton' _ whereas we mere mortals, Newmania, altho very close to him in age, are not ageing nearly so well and thus do not get invited to party with the jeunesse doree of Conservatism. What is your secret, Croydonian? Is it Clinique or will you cite that old canard 'good bone structure'?

I am a MAB, alas. It was all down to corruption at the top of the YBF....

Fancy Newmania not being invited, how unfair. Anyway, glad you had a great time.
