Gossip from Gateshead #1

This is a brief foray into the lighter side of Liberal Democrat Conference in Gateshead. There may well be more issues before the weekend is out but that depends on the amount and quality of the information I receive.

The most pressing matter, of course, is the mystery of the missing chocolate. Yesterday, I put a box of Celebrations and a bag of Minstrels in the Liberal Democrat Voice office. By the time Mark Pack arrived here at the crack of dawn this morning, it had disappeared. What could possibly have happened?  I’m sure that we could run to a small reward for their safe return.

Security to get into the Sage Centre is strict with airport style scanners. There have been grumbles about the length and slow progress of the queues. This morning security officials this morning attempted to confiscate a moderately sized paperclip from an unsuspecting Party member.  The only harm it was likely to do was to enslave an unwieldy bunch of papers into a conforming neatness. Thankfully, a senior party member was on hand to ensure that common sense prevailed.

  • I do hope Mark Pack had a witness to confirm the chocolate had indeed disappeared before he noticed it was missing. I think I know what Morse would suspect…..
