I actually found the Manchester conference quite interesting. The changing economic climate meant the progressive left were debating ideas with relatively more freedom than recent years. In contrast to the 'personality' fixation of the mainstream media.I attended any number of fringe events in which ideas were explored. Amongst highlights I heard were Benn (H) at the SERA event, Crudas, Miliband (E) and many others.

I thought Gordon delivered a godd solid spech in which he gave portions of his natural emotions and driving force. More please.
