Live from t’internet cafe in the West Bar of the Brighton Centre…

The Zero-Carbon Britain debate is starting shortly, although there are huge queues outside the Centre for anyone with a bag. My top tip to any other delegates is to carry your big pile of papers instead of taking a bag. This satisfies the stewards you’re not a terrorist, even if you look a bit odd, and lets you jump the bag check.

Newsnight’s Michael Crick – stuck in the queue too – is currently entertaining the crowd by arguing with the anti-smoking gentleman who protests outside each party conference every year. I think the protester wants a complete ban on all tobacco products. Almost worth the license fee itself.

Stephen and I will be posting up some videos from conference later today, so do visit back regularly for the best conference coverage throughout this week.
