Take the champagne bubbles out of your own eyes

Today’s Daily Mirror splash about David Cameron flouting his own champagne ban is certainly amusing. But a sign of Tory hubris? Because he’s talking about stringent public sector cuts with one side of his mouth and pouring Moet/Bollinger/Tesco Value Champagne into the other?

Well then, where do you draw the line? Derek Simpson’s £40 wine bottles consumed at his £100-a-head TUC congress meal, after positing himself as the poor man’s friend?

Or what about the Labour MP, with arguably less to celebrate polls-wise than Mr Cameron, ordered a bottle of Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin in the Grand at 2am during Labour’s conference?

I’m not saying any of these things are wrong (especially as someone who accepts other people’s hospitality at such conferences). Just that it is arguably silly to single out one side or another as immoral on such grounds. Union bosses who condemn boozy Tories tend to enjoy a few member-subsidised drinks too.

They’re still funny stories…
