Tory Tours Head for Nottingham, Gateshead & Cardiff
Next year's Conservative Party Spring Forum is to be held in Nottingham, although the local paper seems to think the decision hasn't been made yet. It has. So we're off to the gun capital of the UK. Think I'll take a vest. In 2008 the same event will be held in Gateshead and in 2009 it's a choice between Cardif and Birmingham. Birmingham is apparently being difficult and wanting to charge the earth, so with any luck we'll be off to one of my favourite cities in the UK. But hopefully, if the result goes right in the FA Cup Semi Final next week I'll be there a little sooner than 2009! This year's main Party Conference is in Bournemouth so next year it should be Blackpool's turn. I do hope Francis Maude puts Blackpool out of its misery and announces a quick return to Manchester.
