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!

    Someone from Politico tweeted that we just have to hope that we’re not hearing about the Midland Hotel variant in October!

    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?

    John Marriott.

    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.
