I was delighted to go to a fundraiser organised by Walthamstow Labour Party last night. Leading lights Walthamstow MP, Neil Gerrard, and the PPC Stella Creasy (pictured) were just two of the star attractions.
The other two celebrities present and earning their keep were John O’Farrell of “Things Can Only Get Better” fame and the MP for Ealing North, Stephen Pound. John and Stephen both did stand up acts in their own inimitable styles, making the entire audience laugh. It’s very good to go to a Labour Party event and see people really enjoying themselves!
John O’Farrell was, of course, promoting his latest book, “An Utterly Impartial History of Britain”, which was one of the prizes in the inevitable raffle. I have to admit that I haven’t yet read it, though it is on my shortlist to get stuck into over the Christmas break.
My thanks to Walthamstow Labour Party for a great evening. Since there were the best part of 100 people there, many others obviously agreed with me that this fundraiser was the place to be. The finger buffet was also most acceptable and I particularly enjoyed the mulled wine.
