Making friends and influencing people
I come into work this morning, turn on the computer, read through my emails, get to the following briefing from ePolitix. And stop.
"Conservative peer Lord Tebbit, Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik and Sir Andrew Green of campaign group MigrationWatch are among the speakers at an Institute for Economic Affairs event on immigration, public policy and economic welfare."
What in God's name is Lembit doing? One of our most publicity-hungry MPs, how does he think this will endear him to activists in the upcoming presidential battle with Simon Hughes?!
