Not so much dining on Concorde as under Concorde

I never got the chance to fly on Concorde before it was decommissioned but on Thursday night I dined underneath one, at the CBI Eastern Regional Dinner as a guest of Anglian Water at Imperial War Museum Duxford.
It was a great opportunity to meet business people and discuss issues that affect us here in Suffolk and in particular discuss with Anglian Water the important issue of planning our water supply as we build new houses and bring new business to Suffolk. I sat next to the man who had the fun of standing in front of the TV cameras with a brolly and wellies (well not quite the wellies) announcing the hosepipe ban as it poured with rain earlier this year; we also discussed the more serious issue was how close we came to farmers not being allowed to water the crops in the summer; there is no doubt we have to think about this vital resource as we develop our Suffolk economy.
The key note speaker was Ed Balls, Shadow Chancellor. He spoke well and played to his audience with great skill leaving the more, shall we say, socialist elements of his usual speech back in Westminster.
