Nick Clegg, Mick Jagger & Jennie’s meme

When Nick Clegg came to answer questions from the Party’s Federal Executive recently, he was in the middle of G8 talks. It seemed surreal that he was squeezing us in between the President of Mexico and IMF head Christine Lagarde.

The Telegraph tells us that our leader dined in even more illustrious company last night.

Fresh from the Rolling Stones’ amazing performance at Glastonbury, and ahead of this weekend’s Hyde Park concerts, Mick Jagger had dinner with Nick at a posh West London Italian restaurant.

If it had been Paul McCartney, my jealousy would have known no bounds. I’ve always been more of a Beatles than a Stones fan. My real reason for telling you about this is to encourage you to partake of a little Friday night fun (and distraction from the Murray rollercoaster) courtesy of the ever creative Jennie Rigg. She is looking for your suggestions to add to her own as song choices for a Jagger gig at the traditional end of Conference Glee Club.

  • Bah. Paul McCartney. Ilike the Beatles and I like the Stones, but whenever the vexed Beatles/Stones question comes up I always say The Kinks. 😉

    PS: thanks for the linkies :X

  • It’s nice to know where Nick was having dinner. But I’m slightly more curious about what his answers were at the FE to the people who are responsible for running the party (or at least holding those who do to account).

    The posting of reports from the FE seems to have been a bit of a one day wonder 🙂

    Mick Jagger was recently reported as saying that being a pop singer was not a meaningful occupation – not like that of teacher or politician. He also said that Cameron had wanted him to be involved with the Tories – but he felt he was being used.

    MJ might be looking for a new career now that the Stones are finishing. He should have plenty of cash to donate – but there might be a danger insofar as he is used to getting his own way!

    Sorry about the above. I hadn’t realised that by posting a YouTube link – it would overfill the comments section.
