Liverpool West Derby fundraising dinner at Retsina

Shahid Malik MP is easily the best after-dinner speaker I have heard, other than the wonderful Alastair Campbell that is. About 40 or 50 of us had a multi-course meal at this Greek restaurant on Derby Lane – about 8 or 9 courses, we stopped counting to be honest. I sat with Wendy, we had not seen each other for ages properly what with conference and general busy-busy so we had a lot of catching up to do. I missed my mate Kevin though who was poorly.
Shahid was great, funny and political. He was saying how proud he was to be in International Development, but of course he has since been moved in the reshuffle, which is a bit of a shame really. Great night, we raised loads of money for Stephen’s campaign, well done Nick, big hugs.
