The dribble of Doble

In the week that Denis Doble was thrown out of a party, the ‘Evening Standard’ scandalously offers tips on how to get in

 

On Wednesday I evicted Denis Doble from an event I co-hosted. As he arrived, I confronted this well-known party crasher but plainly not knowing who I was, he protested and stated: “I emailed to confirm my attendance”.

Doble – known in some circles as ‘Mr Dribble’ given the nonsense he spouts – tried to ‘reason’ with me until I pointed out we’d featured him in The Steeple Times on previous occasions. “Oh, it’s you, is it?” he innocently bleated and then finally departed muttering something about how unfair it was as he’d made an effort to come from afar to lig a glass of wine and a cocktail or two.

 

Given the season, the party crashing network have plenty of ‘opportunities’ right now but what was surprising on Friday, was that the Evening Standard decided to publish what essentially can only be described as a ‘gatecrashing bible’ within their weekly magazine. In it, Guy Pewsey provided tips such as “pick your targets carefully” and “have a story prepped” and – in summary – he made out these blessed nuisances to be nothing but harmless old buffers. For some, such activity might just be perceived as a bit of fun but for those who’ve had to deal with the fallout of the arrival of the likes of Denis Doble and Sandra Shevey, this feature only adds flames to the fire. The Evening Standard should have instead published a gallery of these rogues and we urge them to now take up this mantle.
