Tories celebrating Empire Day – in 2008?

Under David Cameron’s leadership the Tories have made themselves much more appealing in many ways. Yet sometimes I wonder whether the Conservative Party can ever fully bring itself into the 21st century. Here’s an invitation I got (in all seriousness) by email from a young Tory I knew at University:

X invited you to "EMPIRE DAY DINNER AND WALTZ" on Saturday, May 24 at 6:00pm.

X says, "You are invited to this prestigious White Tie charity gala at the Carlton Club on Empire Day.

Waltz, Dinner, Champagne, Wine, Military Band performance, Jazz band, Auction, Speeches all included in ticket price. I hope you can come.

X".

Event: EMPIRE DAY DINNER AND WALTZ
       "God Save The Queen!"
What: Dinner Party
Host: Cllr Michael Champion
When: Saturday, May 24 at 6:00pm
Where: The Carlton Club

Thanks,

Obviously "X" is not his real name… Will he ever grow up enough to realise there is no more Empire? Unlikely.
