Someone likes Liberal Democrat conference…

Over on Dale & Co Gareth Knight writes:

Any Conservative, including Iain Dale who attends the Liberal Democrat conference, remarks how impressed they are with the mere fact the conference is where party members openly and robustly confer on policy. The exhibition stands at the Liberal Democrat conference include dozens of party groups as well as the recent deluge of large companies and organisations desperate to suck up to the party they’ve proudly ignored until now. The agenda for conference is focused on policy papers with speeches for and against where the party leadership will frequently get involved in the debate. The party organises a comprehensive training and development programme that covers everything from canvassing techniques to developing education policy in councils. Fringe meetings are largely organised by party-affiliated groups. There’s absolutely no doubt that if you became a member of a political party purely because you had an interest in discussing politics and policy, the Liberal Democrats offer their conference attendees infinitely more politics and policy than the other two parties combined.
