Blimey. I've eaten at some expensive restaurants in my time, but nothing remotely like this. £1,000 per plate. Wow. I suppose the Labour Party in Wales are now the "toffs with the cash to splash". Peter Hain and Carwyn Jones' new campaign slogan should be 'Labour Deserves Better' or 'Labour Deserves Wagyu'. It wouldn't be so bad if Peter Hain and his Cabinet colleagues hadn't been flooding the airwaves for months talking about 'Tory toffs'. Don't suppose we'll hear much about that particular line for a day or two!! I wonder whether all these 'modern day champagne socialists' will be wearing any special dress for the occasion. Or will they be donning Welsh rugby kit. I hope that the BBC and Martin Shipman get hold of the guest list. If anyone has a copy, please 'leak' it to me. Maybe Edna Mopbucket will manage to get her fingers on it. In the interests of transparency we should be given the names of these gastro-gods.
Bit sorry to see the Welsh Rugby Union being politicised though. A few years ago, I remember Peter Hain and Rhodri Morgan persuading Mike Ruddock to walk onto a Labour Platform at election time. At the time, I thought it was tragic to see a great rugby coach being treated like a performing chicken. I still like Mike Ruddock, and always keep on eye on how Worcester are doing. And David Pickering is a good guy as well. In fairness to David, he recognised very quickly that he'd made a mistake and apologised. Lets forget it was my instictive response as well. But Oh No - not Welsh Labour. They multiply David Pickering's embarrassment by publicly justifying the use of WRU facilities for Labour's promotional activities. Some people are just devoid of judgement. I suggest 'Pig's Ear' and 'Humble Pie' on the menu. Anyone got any better suggestions.
