I care, a great deal. I hope that we can attract more of these conferences. The City could do with the money!

Well I think that this sort of thing is great for raising York's profile and the City will benefit from that; so we are fortunate to have them here; but as for what goes on at a LibDem conference, if I can't find any paint that needs to be watch while it dries, I might tune in....

Voting Lib Dem in a general election means casting a mystery vote for whichever party their leaders choose to sell themselves to. If I wanted to vote Labour or Conservative, I'ld just do it. As a national party, the Lib Dems have had their last vote from me.

Can anybody recall a bigger demo in York than todays?

So where are the reports form The Press? Too busy schmoozing and aboozing with the Lib Dems?

The voting troll's back. With such a warped brain he/she must be a LibDum.

We don't know (or care) much about the Lib Dems.

But it all seems to have passed off very amicably with some keen supporters, some well- behaved protestors (seen having a laugh with the police outside the Barbican this afternoon) , sunshine, tv, intelligent reporting and a nice exchange of posts. Maybe it hasn't changed the world but...

Brilliant, love it! More please.

Yes. 2003 York against the war, don't invade Iraq. Not in my name and all that.
Well worth it, wasn't it? What a result.

Can't believe it's taken a full eleven years for people to feel like protesting might be worth a go again.

I chuckled this morning when I read in the York "Press" about a delegate in the Barbican foyer who enquired which way to reach the Bar walls.....!
And what's wrong with a Weatherspoons full of LibDem delegates. They are spending their personal dosh locally , which we should all be grateful for.

It is the source of that dosh that I question. How much came from, totally legal but ethically dodgy, 'networking' and corporate sponsorship?
