We had the usual fare for a Conservative drinks evening, wine, dips, cocktail sausages etc. John Horam MP (Orpington) was kind enough to give a speech.
I don’t normally write about these kind of events but I thought that I would this time because John spoke about how David Cameron’s approach mirrored that of Nelson’s at Trafalgar. It was a very good speech and John is very much supportive of the direction that DC is taking the party. This was a contrast to the speaker we had last year, Eric Forth.
Eric was a great speaker and like John spent a great deal of time chatting to our guests and answering their questions. It seems such a short time ago that Eric was in our living room with his “individual” taste in ties and soft Scottish accent.
