It's good to be back! This is my first party conference for 23 years, in fact my first Liberal Democrat one, the last one was a Liberal Party Assembly. Everything is bigger and shinier now. Better organised, more professional. Speakers appear on a giant video screen. There are so many fringe meetings it would take 6 months to attend them all. There are numerous training sessions on everything from snap general elections to taking better photos for Focus. The best thing hasn't changed though - the opportunity to spend a few days with other Lib Dems plotting to make the world a better place.
Sandi Toksvig's Q&A session with Ming yesterday was a highlight, a nice combination of wit and wisdom. Now it's time to plunge into conference again.......................
