I didn't hear Ming's speech today so I won't comment on second hand reports. But I do know that Ming has succeeded in upsetting just about every Liberal Democrat party organisation going. Each conference the leader takes a tour of the exhibition stands. Ming offered himself for just 45 minutes, meaning that he only had time to visit the commercial stalls and skipped over all the party stalls which are traditionally visited by the leader. It's not a very sensible move upsetting organisations which have a lot of power within the party, are run by ordinary members, and have the ability to submit motions to conference. Tsk Tsk.
