On Saturday I attended the Labour Group Fundraising Dinner to Commemorate the Bicentennial Aniversary of the Abolition of the Transatlantic Slave Trade to raise funds for the Damilola Taylor Trust with Mr and Mrs Taylor as the guests of honour.
I worked behind the bar with my colleagues Sandra Rhule and Richard Livingstone and it was a very succesful evening.
On Saturday I certainly needed something to lift the gloom after seeing Scotland go down to a very good Italy side 2-1 in the 92nd minute. I know that many commentators went with the "Glorious failure" routine but that is really not fair as Scotland have gone from a world ranking of 88 (their lowest ever!) to number 14 in just 2 years and that is a considerable achievement in anyones books!!
In reality a weak defence was our undoing and we need to look for some good central defenders in time for the World cup Qualifiers and with our higher ranking hopefully we wont end up in the same group as both World Cup Finalists!!! Well done Scotland!!!!
I watched the Andrew Marr show yesterday and saw a farcical debate between Tweedledum and Tweedledee (pictured) in which Huhne(looks like a real nasty piece of work!!!) sent out a smear dossier to the BBC calling Clegg "Calamity"!! They then ended up in a very unsavoury scrap on live TV which could not have gone any worse. their spin doctors must have screwed themselves into the ground on hearing it!!!!
How I laughed!!!! Nothing finer that watching opposition parties commit Hari Kari live on TV!! I loved it!!!
