Correct me if I am wrong, but it is patently a mutual backslapping piss up. Is anything actually achieved at all?
The Tories (bring back Maggie) this year used it as a platfrom for their forthcoming leadership election. David Davis promptly sent many members to the land of nod and David Cameron surprised a lot of people and is now coming up on the rails on the favourite. Kenneth Clarke I believe has left it too late in his political career. The others? Who gives a shit.
The Liberals huffed and puffed and as usual failed to blow any houses down, bless.
So there we go then until next year. I bet you cannot wait.
Is there a clandestine reason why they pick the two towns that are considered the gay capitals of the north and south for these shindigs?
Just a thought.
