Apparently, for a princely (or perhaps regal) sum, the “privilege” of lunching with Theresa May during the Conservative Party Conference is For Sale. Not sure whether it includes the price of the meal.
Is this the next phase, after proposing the use of the Royal Prerogative, where Mrs May continues her “royal progression” by requiring her “subjects” to pay for the privilege of her company?
Of course, if she were a true mediaeval monarch on a royal progression, she would invite herself to your place with all her hangers-on, and stay as long as she wanted while you footed the bill.
Perhaps we’re getting off lightly so far, but I’m sure that a long stay by her in the Palace of Westminster will cost the whole country very dearly.
