I could sit here and tell you all about the excellent event with Nigel Lawson that took place last night but why would I do that when someone else already has?

Cue Grant Tucker, executive assistant to Iain Dale (aka big cheese). Grant has reviewed the event here and has included some great anecdotes.

Just to warn those of varying political tastes, Grant is a hilariously unashamed Tory and possibly one of the most idiosyncratic comments is this:

"As you know the rest is history. There was a miners’ strike and Britain won."
