Newham Burns Night: The GS Piping in the Haggis

On Friday I celebrated Burns Night at the Newham event in Stratford Town Hall.  I had heard that the new General Secretary of the Labour Party, Iain McNicol, was attending but I didn't know that he played the bagpipes. So I was astonished when he "Piped in the Haggis" (see picture).

I had a conversation with Iain later in the evening about various Party issues. A good guy I think.

While searching Google tonight I see from an usually reliable source that Iain also has a black belt in Karate. Which as the Labour Party GS will no doubt prove very, very useful...
