Come and celebrate - oh and the drinks are on you

After the parliamentary party meeting we all trooped off to the Commonwealth Club for what was billed as a celebratory reception. We were all somewhat surprised that there was a cash bar! Now, I know that we have just fought an election and the coffers are low but the least we could have done was ensured that each of our new colleagues had at least one free drink. Many of them have given up their jobs to fight the election and are pretty broke so this did seem just a little mean-spirited.

We quickly set up an alternative celebration as we trooped to Pizza Express where the drinks are a bit cheaper...
