Iron Man Challenge with Iain Duncan Smith.
Tories auction off an Iron Man challenge with Iain Duncan Smith (10th February).
Super-rich guests at the event in London last night were invited to bid on lots including an Iron Man challenge with Iain Duncan Smith, an early morning jog with Nicky Morgan, shoe shopping with Theresa May and a roast chicken dinner at home with Michael Gove.
Hedge-fund kings, City tycoons and captains of industry were among the 1,100 guests paying between £500 and £1,500 a ticket for the bash at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
The eagle-eyed newshounds of the Ilford Recorder give more details,
The secretary of state for work and pensions offered the opportunity for the lucky winner to join him for an “action-packed” race at the gala evening at the five-star Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair last night (Monday).
Guests paid up to £15,000 for a table at the event, with the party auctioning off items including a shoe-shopping trip with home secretary Theresa May, budget papers signed by chancellor George Osborne and a bronze statue of Margaret Thatcher.
A description of the Redbridge MP’s entry read: “Feeling adventurous? Join Iain Duncan Smith in this mini Iron Man style ‘Endeavour’.
“This 10km course will be action-packed, suitable for endurance race veterans or competitors who are looking for a challenge.
“You will encounter hills, woods, streams, hedges and hay bales as you seek the finish line in a bid to beat your team mate.”
I was just at the Dentist.
Reading Town and Country I learn that in the posher parts of London it’s £7,000 per square foot for flats and homes.
I might get me a half a foot out of a year’s JSA.
For reasons that are hard to explain Ipswich Unemployed Action was not invited to the Grosvenor House Hotel.
But in Town and Country I notice this this delightful Valentine’s gift.
I shall send it to Iain Duncan Smith in appreciation for all his hard work.
