The best Conference to date.
The tone was non-strident (of course - now the media says we're dull...)
The speeches were a reflection of thought and ideology - rather than crudely-strung soundbites.
There was a real feeling that shadow departments were really talking to each other wtih common purpose.
For anyone involved in the voluntary sector, it was hugely encouraging.
and I even got to ask a question during the Welfare Reform session - see it here - about 45 minutes in. (you can fast forward; but the session is well worth watching in full.)
Now back to reality.
After talking about Job Club & 50+ all week, it will be great to be there again!
