Nothing like a good protest to welcome me to the LibDem Party Conference. And it wasn;t a protest at their decision to let me in! These are Brighton & Hove Albion supporters who launched a vocal protest against LibDem MP for Lewes Norman Baker and LibDem controlled Lewes Council who are against the new stadium plans at Falmer. However, I'm assures that all other LibDems locally are in favour of it. I think that's called having your cake and eating it.
Anyway, I'm typing this in the bar of the Metropole Hotel, sitting about ten feet away from the smoking chimney that is Lady Elspeth, the formidable wife of Ming the Merciless. I got here having had the worst nine holes of golf I have played for weeks and endured seeing West Ham lose to a poor Newcastle team. So I'm relying on the LibDems to brighten up my evening. Hmmm.
The reason I am here is to attend the LibDem bloggers fringe meeting tonight, where they are handing out some awards. I'll be recording my Channel 4 Podcast there and also a piece for tomorrow's Today Programme. The Guide to Blogging seems to be going down well with those I have handed it out to. Later.
