Weekly Ligger: Gordon Owen

Following on from last week’s post, another name has been suggested by readers: Gordon Owen.


There’s definitely something wrong with Owen as anyone who’s seen his absolutely hideous outfits can testify to.   He’s another one who loves to drink and gets the shakes when he’s not plastered.

Through GoCo Mice and Messrs G Owen & Co, Owen claims to be an “International Events Management Consultant” which is a fancy way of saying “will freeload in any country.” He also claims to write children’s books though I wouldn’t let him near my children.  Owen describes himself on Twitter as a “dynamic, multi-faceted, and proactive individual with an experienced strategic holistic approach.” What a load of tosh!

Having been identified at “Frankenstein’s Monster” via our earlier Blind Item, Owen is best kept away from the buffet and the bar . . . especially at closing time, as he’s apparently been caught stealing half drunk bottles of beer.


Many thanks for the reader who sent us this snap of Owen and an accomplice (no doubt hiding more beer).  At least we now know where he puts it.

Well known in ligging circles, Owen is part of a larger group of liggers, though even the completely batty Sandra Shevey seems to be distancing herself from his gang of gatecrashers.


When even the craziest liggers want nothing to do with you, you know your time is up! Time Mr Owen was retired.






Weekly Ligger: Sandra Shevey

A new feature, one suggested by some of our more active readers, was a weekly post highlighting a particularly menacing London ligger. We think this is an excellent idea and after reviewing your submissions, one name stood out: Sandra Shevey.

Sandra Shevey


Shevey first came to prominence on Twitter for her extreme(ly) bizarre views and downright banal rants. Since then, she’s become a fully fledged member of London’s ligging scene showing up to every event you can think of, provided there’s food, and has perfected the art of eating and talking non-stop, without taking so much as a breath.


The ultimate canapé chaser, Matthew Steeples has termed her the “Turbo Ligger” which is very appropriate. Please be vigilant and keep a lookout for this crazy lunatic. Don’t believe us?  Here’s a sample of today’s missive.
