Lunch With David Cameron
Posted Friday, 23 February 2007 at 09:57

David Cameron sometimes joins us for lunch. Yesterday I mentioned the syncophancy which takes place here on the grandest scale - here's an example.

Ed Vaizey was sat at the lunch table and I was stood opposite him leaning on the back of my chair chatting to Ed. DC swept into the room like a whirlwind - he does that - he walks twice as fast as anyone else I know, his aides  'bustle' behind him attempting to keep up. I once saw a character drawing of a stick thin Lowryesque woman walking, leaning forward into the wind. She had hold of two young children by the hand who flew out behind her, their feet off the floor, hurtling through the air in her wake. Every time DC walks past with his staff that picture skittles across my mind

Anyway, our leader walked in and swept towards me, my seat was the only one vacant so I said “here, take my seat” and walked around towards Ed to continue our conversation, happy to give up my place at the table in order to carry on chatting to Ed. Another MP rose from the table and said “here Nadine I am going now, you take my seat” which was next to Ed. What foillowed was comical.

As I took my first step towards the seat, one of my intake came in throught the door, like a great white he fixed his stare on his prey, my new seat, opposite David, and charged at a rate of knots, I stood and watched with pity and amusement, just as he got  tantilisingingly close I took the fatal last step and sat down. Just to rub it in further - I started chatting  to David in an animated fashion.

So funny - the great whites crestfallen face was such a picture! He fleetingly bared his teeth at me as he snarled, circled once, and then glided away.

Fact is, I know that David knows who the creeps are, you can see it in his eyes. His face doesn't really change when MPs salivate and fawn at his feet and talk too much and make innane comments, but his eyes do. Which is just as well - he swims in shark infested waters.

BT are driving me insane - my broadband isn't sorted in my new house yet so I am doing this from a Blackberry, please excuse spellings, grammar etc! Busy day in the constituency today, but I know it will be the best day of my week!

I must say I am loving your blog. It is very refreshing to see a politician talking like a human being! Pity you couldn't elaborate on the "creeps" and the sharks in the water. Or could you? ;-)

Ha ha Nadine! Hilarious! I love it when such creeps are foiled. Sadly and as you point out, the HofC is full of them. If only so many didn't prosper from it... said:

Next time "was sitting" instead of "was sat".

I can't tell! But if you want to see real creeps in action watch the Labour MPs during PMQ's when they stand up and say "would the Prime Minister agree with me" - that should always be followed by - " that I would make an excellent minister"!!
