* Conference goers were none too impressed by BBC Political Correspondent, John Pienaar, who didn't fancy joining the LibDems on the conference shuttle bus (who can blame him) which took the bearded ones from the main hotel to the conference centre. Instead, Pienaar opted for a taxi. Good man.
* Liverpool City Council Cabinet member Colin Eldridge, who owns a laundry business in the City, was allegedly spotted urging delegates staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, the official conference hotel, to make full use of their hotel towels. His company coincidentally does the hotel's laundry. Nice to see the LibDems full of the entrepreneurial spirit! However, he lists himself as a member of Friends of the Earth in his online biog. Obviously he doesn't go along with all these pesky signs in hotel bedrooms urging people to 'think of the environment' before using more towels!
* Photographers at the Crowne Plaza Hotel tried in vain to get a picture of Nick Clegg standing by a rather hideous statue in the entrance lobby of the Crowne Plaza. The name of the statue? Fallen Angel...
Thanks to my undercover reporter in Liverpool for these snippets.
UPDATE: I was going to attempt to Fisk Nick Clegg's speech, but since Cranmer has done it already, I won't bother. It really was a bizarre experience, full of contradictions and odd assertions.
