No Cannes do

  • Comment

And so from Peter Davey's civilised and cultured bash at the RA to the debauchery of Cannes, for the international celebration of property wealth that is MIPIM.

The first disappointment was announced a few days before the event got under way: a statement from the organisers revealed construction minister Nigel Griffiths had cancelled his planned trip to the Riviera due to 'pressing parliamentary business'.

This decision will surely leave the Gordon Brown clone with further industry problems after he gained the nickname the 'seven-minute minister' in the autumn due to an astonishingly short appearance at a Labour Party Conference fringe meeting.
