Ed­die the Ego falls flat

The Mail on Sunday - - News -

COMIC Ed­die Iz­zard’s ego­tism cost him his seat on Labour’s gov­ern­ing NEC, snipe col­leagues. Mod­er­ate Luke Ake­hurst, also de­feated by Cor­byn al­lies in the vote, said: ‘Ed­die would have got elected if he ran on a team with all of us who share [the] same values. Next time hope we have a united team against the Hard Left, not bull****.’ HEAD­ING into No 10 for din­ner to dis­cuss Brexit, arch-Brus­sels baiter An­drew Brid­gen was asked whether ‘a few glasses of good wine would per­suade you to sup­port the Prime Min­is­ter’s Che­quers pro­posal’. The burly Tory back­bencher shot back: ‘I wouldn’t sup­port Che­quers if they of­fered me the whole wine cel­lar.’ AT THE same din­ner, Gavin Bar­well, the Prime Min­is­ter’s chief of staff, was wor­ried that nor­mally vol­u­ble Brex­i­teer Peter Bone was so quiet. ‘Cat got your tongue, Peter?’ he asked. ‘I’m only here for the din­ner,’ replied Bone. ‘Any­thing you say in these No 10 meet­ings gets leaked.’ Wise man.
