Maguire on pub where Blair told: UK not joining euro

The drink culture in Westminster is changing with some political types now preferring coffee and sparkling water to alcohol.

The Mirror's Kevin Maguire spoke about the conversion in the Red Lion pub, when then-prime minster Tony Blair was told that the UK would not be joining the euro currency.

He was speaking with Andrew Neil, Jo Coburn and Nigel Farage on BBC Two's Daily Politics.
