David Miliband has incurred the wrath of UK lad culture as he has opted for a joint stag night with his bride-to-be, Justine Thornton in what's been dubbed a "hag night". The couple have been together for many years and decided to finally tie the knot after have two children together and it promises to be a "quiet one" in the words of the Labour party leader.
The pair will marry at the end of this month in a small civil ceremony with only around 50 guests invited. The pre-nuptial party will be 'keeping it low key' with a dinner with close friends with around 30 people excepted in his Doncaster constituency.
‘I’m not going to tell you about my stag. But it won’t be two Fabian Society lectures and half a pint of beer, as somebody in Westminster suggested.’
‘At the end of the day we’re in our 40s and we’ve got two kids - so it wasn’t a case of me suddenly popping the question. This is just something we think is right for us.’
A friend close to the pair said,
‘It will be an evening with old friends and fairly low key. I can safely say no one is going to be stripped naked and tied to a lamp post,’ the source said.
Sounds like the Royal stag weekend all over again, I'm afraid, meaning we'll have to look elsewhere for our stag party scandal, for now.
