Disco 2014Last night, saw the Liberal Democrat Disco, organised at conference by Cambridge local party to raise funds for its general election campaign.

It was a great night with a packed hall featuring the “Battle of the LibDem deejays”.

Alistair Carmichael was cheered the loudest, thus winning the accolade of “deejay of the night”. His set included Lulu’s “Shout” and Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5”. He finished on a serious note, explaining that we had passed over midnight into the Sabbath. Coming from the islands of Scotland (where they are very serious about these things), Alistair felt there should be one song of religious observance. He therefore played “YMCA”.

Cazzie Sparkle (aka Caron Lindsay) came second with Sister Sledge’s “We are family”, Kylie’s “Can’t get it out of my head” and a bit of a Scottish ceilidh with “The Gay Gordons”.

Don Foster was third, with our party President, Tim Farron, being fourth, presumably rather saddled with his choice of “Duran Duran” and “Girls in film”

Here are the assembled dancers doing those very same Gay Gordons while Cazzie Sparkle, and patron of the event, Julian Huppert looking on with delight from behind the double decks.
