Last Day at conference
Well it's the last day at this years Lib Dem conference. Usually the leaders speech is about lunchtime and there is not much on in the morning. This year though the speech was pushed back which allowed more time to discuss more policies. Of particular interest was a motion on the governments "Decent Homes" programme. The scheme, much trumpeted by Labour but in reality a plan to bring council homes up for a minimum standard, has been cut back onto and there are real problems with its implementation, noth in Gateshead and Nationally.
Then Nicks speech. It was great and Nick emphasised the strength in his parliamentary team. He's right - he just needs some more people to join them!
