Leopard’s Leap Fuels British Politics

Just came across this article from the Guardian Unlimited, the website of the Guardian newspaper, about how Leopard’s Leap is the drink of choice at a party thrown by leading Labour politician Peter Hain.

Written by Bill Blanko, the relevant parts of the article are carried below. The entire article, titled Let’s drink to leadership elections, can be found here.

“Peter Hain gets my vote for Labour deputy leader. The man is always throwing drinks parties.

Seems like only yesterday that we were all slurping down champagne at his Christmas party at the Northern Ireland Office.

This week it was his St David’s Day bash at Gwydyr House (that’s the Wales Office, a very convivial venue for Whitehall drinks parties, I’ve always found).

And what’s this in the post? An invitation from Peter to a reception later this month to “commemorate the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade”. Well, why not? I’m up for it. I’ll commemorate anything if there’s a large glass of something acceptable to commemorate it with.

Nelson Mandela was staring down at me from a poster on Peter’s office wall as I glugged the hearty supply of Leopard’s Leap Shiraz (South African, naturally, from Peter) to celebrate St David.

Honestly, anyone would think there was a battle for the Labour succession underway: good turnout of Labour MPs and only one topic of conversation, the deputy leadership and the Clarke-Milburn “Stop Gordon” campaign.

Little Hazel Blears was there, keeping an eye on the opposition. And, here’s an exclusive: Lembit Opik and ex-girlfriend Sian Lloyd were in the same room for the first time since he ran off with his Cheeky Girl.

Bit of a cold front in the atmosphere, we all thought. Had us grasping for a top-up of Leopard’s Leap to calm the nerves.”
