Now I am not going to be one of these bloggers that go on and on at length about how wonderful Gordon Brown or Tony Blair are, and I am not even going to tell you which one I prefer, what I am going to do is ask for the highlights of the non-celebrity political speakers.

For instance a delegate from AMICUS today Mrs P Muggins (Also from my local CLP) outlined why the rule of 85 in local government had to stay, this is something that local parties and the Scottish Executive have been at odds about for sometime now. If you don't know much about it the short version is that public servants are allowed to retire early as long as their age and their service adds up to more than 85 years old. AMICUS are against this change, and Phil Muggins spoke eloquently and forcibly on this issue and I was really impressed, as conference goes on I think I will look out for more like her instead of the publicised speeches, tell me who you think is impressive.
