Despite Covid, the Guardian predicts “no escape” from the Lib Dem disco

The Guardian sketch writer, John Crace, gives a witty mention to our beloved disco in his parliamentary sketch this morning:

A return to normal: 21 June. There would be no escape for those hoping to avoid the disco night at the Lib Dem party conference.

I understand that the LibDem glitterball is receiving a high-sheen polish as we speak!

    In these difficult times, please allow me to inject what I hope is a bit of humour. My apologies if this offends anyone.

    The Vaccine Minister said that, as a first stage in undoing the lockdown, “two people can socialise over a coffee out of doors”. Are they going to hold a competition to decide who those two lucky people are going to be?

    Don’t give them ideas.

    Prince Andrew and who ? “Just a shooting party”.

    I’m predicting they will end the ban on conferences somewhere between the end of ours and the start of theirs.
