Cameron's visit to Morrisons puts him neck and neck with Osborne in daft speech venue contest

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, yesterday's speech by the Prime Minister at the Morrisons distribution centre in Bridgewater (above) could be seen as a bid to keep up (or down) with Chancellor George Osborne - who tried out another Morrisons distribution centre (in Kent) as a bizarre venue for making a political speech a month ago,

What the connection is between Morrisons supermarkets and the higher reaches of the Conservative Party I have no idea but, if anyone else has a clue, I'd be very glad to hear from them.

Meanwhile, I'm grateful to Morrisons and the Conservative Party for providing such a timely reminder that the closing date of our Spring Competition (inviting nominations of daft places to make speeches -
 details HERE) is only two weeks away.

The Morrisons' connection might be because of a briefing they organised last year to show MPs how the economy works.

Corporate Services Group Director Martyn Jones spoke
alongside Save the Children CEO Justin Forsyth, DfID Secretary
of State Andrew Mitchell and Chancellor George Osborne, at the
Save the Children event at the Conservative party conference.

Not sure this clears anything up though.
