And here’s his big joke as reported in the Daily Mail:
“Joke of the night
Auctioneer Hugo Swire, a Tory MP, inviting bids for the flight, said: ‘For an extra £1,000 we will throw in a case of wine. For an extra £5,000, we will throw in Greece as well.”
The guests included porn barons, sex shop owners, Peter Stringfellow and people who had bedn jailed for financial crimes. No guest list was issued and no table places were marked in case information about the 1,000 plus guests leaked to the press. Only those entering by the main door were snapoed, others chose discrete entrances.
