It's nice to be wanted... me neither.

Just been catching up with Tom Harris' blog, and his complaint about not being invited to Derek Draper's Labour blogathon. Well as you can see from the list of invitees on Guido, I wasn't invited either. I shared a cab with Derek Draper and David Lammy at Labour's last National Policy Forum, having all arrived separately on the same train. He now says hello to me when he sees me, which always seems to be when I'm going up and he's going down the escalator to/from Portcullis House. But that's it.

And I was wrong about Fairytale of New York inevitably being Tom's number one... So now I'm betting on Slade. (Someone will now tell me he's already done them, but if so I haven't noticed). Then again, he said his wife, Caroline, shares the same number one as him, and she likes 'Christmas Wrapping' by the Waitresses so obviously is a woman of taste and refinement. Hmmm...

Do you know what Kerry, when I saw that blog on Tom's site, I immediately went to Guido's site to see the list, and looked for you. Now why the f..k should I be interested in a Labour MP who is a woman and a vegan and thinks I am smelly. Don't worry Kerry (not that you would). I just think that with all your idiosincrasies, you could be a force to be reckoned with (which I did say somewhere recently on an F2C thread). I also said on Tom's site that you were fiery but naive and used to keep your blogs open.

That Derek Draper is obviously a bit dim.

I don't remember saying I thought you were smelly. I don't. Are you?

I got an invite although didn't go largely because I thought that 7.45am was a little on the optimisitic side after a week of Christmas boozing, the hint of free food notwithstanding.

I'd start putting big money on Bing 'n' Bowie's Little Drummer Boy for top spot in Tasteless Tom's Christmas chart of evil.

And it's perfectly obvious, if you read his blog, that his missus should be the MP and he should take up something more suited to his talents.

Given his seasonal proclivities, the back end of a pantomime horse perhaps?

Have we had Greg Lake yet? Or Band Aid?

You didn't. Forgot myself for a moment. That's the effect regular comments have, (usually accompanying newspaper articles), on those of us who smoke.
