Lord Levy's "Get out of Jail Party" at Foreign Office costing taxpayers £6,000 - Official.

The Guradian is reporting that the Foreign Office has organised a lavish party for Tony Blair's special Middle Eastern envoy, Lord Levy (currently out on bail) at Lancaster House in Central London next Tuesday. In a written Parliamentary answer, Foreign Office Minister Geoff Hoon states: "The estimated cost is £6,000, which will be met by the Foreign Secretary's entertainment budget."

One wonders if staunch ally of the Kings of Saudi Arabia and British Aerospace (amongst many others) Sir Andrew Green, ***Ex Ambassador at Riyadh, will be invited so they might share a tale or two about their respective roles in the Middle East. Bribery does of course come quite naturally to both of them.
