Leadership contenders go head-to-head

Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne will go head-to-head at the South Central Regional Conference in Newbury, Berkshire today.

I’m sure it will be carried on News24, so if anyone can enlighten us in the comments as to when the hustings is due to start (for some reason News Online systematically deny their readers information like this) then we’d be very grateful!

  • Two idiots one party that is going down the drain.

  • KH you talking about Cameron & Osborne again?!
    Give those poor fellas a break, and maybe you own little mind while your at it.

    Has anybody ever listened to Osborne on the radio? ie without picture on tv – what is it that he reminds me of? A day out canvassing in Rochdale for the best answer

    It never ceases to amaze me that some folk can have such empty lives that they have to hang around the web sites of parties they don’t like just to post snide, pathetic little gibes as we find here from KH!
    Personally I wouldn’t even want to visit Tory-Labour sites….
    KH – Get a Life! Go out and meet people, go to the movies, anything!!

  • Has it happened yet?
    Maybe the BBC are recording it to show after the rugby or on the politics show tomorrow

    Yes, it’s happened. It got reasonable coverage on Radio 4, which I listened to on the way home. A good event; frankly, I think everyone there (about 120? activists from Berks Bucks Oxon & Hants) would be perfectly happy with either of them.

  • Very revealing remark that I’m pretty certain I heard from a BBC correspondent at the Newbury event.

    Asked whether members appeared annoyed that a leadership election was taking place, the BBC man replied:

    “I’ve been trying to find someone who will say that they are unhappy with what has happened” (I paraphrase)

    And I thought the BBC was there to report news, not to seek to confirm their own prejudices!

    Anybody else hear this?
