An Evening at Number 10

July 9th, 2010 | by nick |

Last week, rather out of the blue, I received a formal invitation to a reception at Number 10 – and so it was that this evening I was sipping Pimms in the garden of Downing Street. It felt quite weird, but I did think as I wondered through the security cordon that if a few years ago someone had asked me whether I thought I would ever see the inside of Number 10, I’d have laughed it off as absurd. Almost as surprisingly, there were loads of people I knew – mainly MPs and members of the Party Board.

So having secured my efforts for many more years, it wasn’t too much of a surprise to find myself co-opted into helping fix the Party Membership Database – Merlin. Oooh, it was an expensive drink!
