Wake Week

As we finish packing the last few bits of thermal underwear, I've been refreshing my memory on how Blackpool looked last time we were there, just two short years ago.

Ah, the optimism...

Ah, the Newsnight stitch-up...

Ah, the Old Chums Connection...

Where are they now? Where are all those fair weather media chums? Dave's given them everything they demanded- ecowibble, hugga hoodie, taxnspend... and yet here they are revelling in his destruction.

Truly, truly, I say unto you, he who is guided by the politics of image shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Hey ho.

Now, where are my galoshes?

PS We conference going ordinary party members have no idea what line the leadership is going to take next week, other than what we read in the press and on Conservative Home. One view seems to be that Cameron is going to take yet another swipe at us "traditionalists" for queering his pitch, and at the same time to further underline his own centrist credentials. Let's hope not. Those of us who don't get invites to those private reassurance dinners are still waiting to hear a clear and firm statement of the "politics of and". And he's going to need us out on the streets of those Lib Dem marginals in a couple of weeks time.
