Word reaches me that at the Bruges Group dinner last night that Thatcher attended there were some shenanigans about who should sit on the top table. According to a mole, Lord Tebbit rather liked the idea of the leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage sitting at the top table.
Unfortunately, Robert Oulds is said to have been quite against the idea and only acquiesced when Tebbit, and then the UKIP peer Pearson insisted that the most prominent withdrawalist in the country sat at the top table with Maggie herself.
Frankly I find this sort of stuff amusing because most ordinary people couldn't give a rats arse who sits where. Political dinner seating arrangements are a bit like weddings no? Who sits next to the dodgy Uncle or the black sheep child etc etc?
