Hiding the Euro bag

It was lunch at the LGA conference in Harrogate and the delegates were all talking about the Cable/Cameron session-more of which later-when I met Jack Colbert. He and I were heading for the teas and coffees when we spied a third Sefton Councillor , Ron Watson. I was a tad surprised to see him at the Euro stand-but recalled that he does have some important role concerning Europe within the LGA. Jack and I were just about to say hello when Ron left carrying a striking blue and yellow plastic bag emblazoned with the logo of the European Union. He paused at the next stall to pick up a plain cotton bag and stuffed the Euro bag in to it. Is it not the done thing for a Tory to be seen with Euro material?
