Apocryphal anecdote

I will post something of some measure of substance but in the meantime this from Kevin Maguire's New Statesman column this week:

"After the invitation that never was, the by-election stunt that never was. Labour's stunt machine considered dressing an activist in the Edwardian tailcoat and wing collar of the Bullingdon Club to dog Druggie Dave in Ealing Southall. A party worker rang a gentleman's outfitter in Oxford, posing as a prospective member of the Buller. On being informed the full rig cost £3,000, he inquired how much it would cost to rent for a couple of weeks. "Sir," sniffed the tailor, "you are an impostor. A real gentleman would never ask such a question."
