As The Daily packed the headache tablets in preparation for this year’s conference we were flicking through the conference agenda. Maybe we’re missing something, but there is a worrying absence of our dear leader from the timetable of speeches. Is he not giving a talk this year? Has the Labour party moved on already, forgetting Blair even exists? Brown is speaking on Monday for people interested in the real business of government.
Meanwhile, Hull University Labour Club point out that Harriet Harman is speaking at four simultaneous fringe meetings in four different locations around Manchester. Looks like her deputy leadership campaign may have got off to a slightly chaotic start.
