In partnership with Politicoâ€™s Book Shop, Politicalbetting.com is happy to announce the date and venue, as above, of its annual party which this year will be combined with the launch of Mikeâ€™s book, The Political Punter, which is being published by Harriman House.
The venue is made possible by the sponsorship of our MP contributors, John Hemming (LD), Stewart Jackson (CON) and Nick Palmer (LAB). Our thanks to them.
Politicos will, at its own cost, be inviting along a number of journalists for the launch, so if you attend you not only get the chance to insult personally many of those you have been insulting all year on the site, but you will also be able to air your views to the denizens of the press. How can you miss this opportunity?
No formal arrangements have been made for drinks afterwards but we expect a fair few of us will shuffle across to St Stephens Tavern for the evening. Naturally anybody who cannot make the launch itself will be very welcome to catch up with us there.
Afternoon refreshments will be served at the launch and to cover the cost of this we are charging Â£13.50 per head. There will be no other charge. I need to firm up on numbers as soon as possible and provide names to The House, so I must ask all those who intend to come for a definite commitment by Friday 6th April at the latest â€“ if you can do so sooner, it will be a big help to me. Please email your confirmations to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
PB has a small budget to contribute towards wine at the launch and if there is any left over, weâ€™ll stick it behind the bar at the pub. Naturally if anybody feels moved to contribute personally to the alcoholic side of things, we will be very grateful for any offerings.
I look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible. Politicoâ€™s reckon they will bring along at least 25. Iâ€™d like to think PB can top that. Bust a gut to get there; it should be worth it.
