Great atmosphere at conference
I am at the Liberal Democrats Spring Conference in Birmingham this weekend. Birmingham has certainly moved on since I was last here and is a great venue. The good news is that this conference will be coming to Gateshead in two years time, so great for the delegates and even better for the local economy. Nick Clegg gave a great speech at tonight's opening Rally and there is a real feeling of positivity about our chances. This is tempered with a need to be even more practical than ever and make 100% sure that our policies work and are completely transparent and understandable.
