Why was the conference not held in Manchester when I lived there? I might have actually been able to go!

For reference:

Midland Hotel and Conf Centre gigs are inside the cordon. No proximity without pass. Others are outside. Great shame #twinge moved inside the security. Town Hall would have been better.

"Why was the conference not held in Manchester when I lived there? "

I think they've only just found out where it is.

The Conference Needed A Bit Of Livening Up.

Thanks, Boris.

Do you seriously expect there to be CPC guests who don't read your blog??

Wildly OT/T, but looking at recent headlines, think of the sweet irony if Harriet Harman loses her job as a result of bad driving.

I see David Cameron is not attending the Agents dinner again -the last before a general election. This is at least his second no show since his election. Any idea why this time?

Out of interest, how many events would one be able to attend without any form of ticket/invite whatsoever...?

Have fun though.
