The Simon Hughes Memorial Prize for Multiple Simultaneous Fringe Booking goes to … Paul Burstow, Vince Cable, Lynne Featherstone and Sarah Teather (fx: applause). They each cram in three simultaneous meetings in one slot. Watch out for multiple Usain Bolt impressions they dash between their different slots.

Note: I have included MPs marked as “tbc” and “invited” but excluded those who are not listed even if I know otherwise (as my extra information is only partial). MPs listed in advertisements in the fringe booklet but not in the fringe listing itself have also been included.

See here for the 2009 autumn conference league table.

  • Where is the fringe guide available, please?

  • Cheltenham Robin 25th Aug '10 - 12:26pm
  • Surprised not to see some of the presumed rising stars of the party putting themselves about more – Tessa, Ian and Julian I’m look at you!

  • Just looking at the fringe programme – competition for the Glee Club! Do you choose “Losing Deposits” over “Teenage Kicks”?

    “The Simon Hughes Memorial Prize for Multiple Simultaneous Fringe Booking goes to …”

    Well, yes, in the case of Simon Hughes, he is notorious for double-booking. But in many cases, unscrupulous fringe meeting organisers list star names without confirming that the guest speakers they have invited are able or willing to accept the invitation. They do this to make their fringe meetings look ‘sexier’ in the listings. And it’s a cheaper ploy than offering free booze and food.

    Delegates would be well advised to take a lot of these fringe meeting listings with a pinch of salt.

  • Steve Hicks 6th Oct '10 - 11:13am

    Good to see Penzance MP Andrew George get a reasonable showing in the table.
