So much booze, so little time...

As Guido points out, there are a couple of think-tank barneys this evening.
Not sure what the booze situation is tonight in Westminster for the Centre for Policy Studies seminar on Politics, Policy and the Internet, the invitation doesn't say. George Osborne is a big Politics 2.0 advocate of the power of the web and he is headlining it along with Tom Steinberg.

At exactly the same time over at Bloomberg's offices in the City, Jeremy Hunt, the DCMS Shadow, is talking about the New Media Politics Revolution. Booze is clearly highlighted on the invite.

Like Guido, your humble Devil normally enjoys the piss-ups at the ASI (I shall be there tomorrow night, as it happens), but it's always good to investigate fresh watering holes.

In this case, I have my invite and shall be attending the latter do...

UPDATE: OK, I am now going to take a lot more notice of Reform. The venue was stunning, the speeches were short (and actually relatively interesting) and, most importantly, the free booze was both varied and plentiful. Yes, it is that easy to get my attention—although buying my approval is another matter...

I want to go to the ASI but I shall be in the Lords taking notes as they are only allowing one day for their debate on the Lisbon Treaty. They'll stop at nothing, these fuckers. The debate will finish so late that of course most of the speeches won't be heard.

And I wonder if all those in receipt of EU pensions will declare an interest?

I wish I had gone to the Reform thing now, I could have bought you a drink DK...

Whilst I appreciate the sentiment, Ed, you would not have needed to. Seriously, the booze was flowing very, very freely...

Exactly - a very cheap round! I did mean to go to that but hadn't written it in my diary...
