Yesterday attendees started to arrive at Blackpool for the party conference. This year Islington Conservatives will be represented by around 15 members and residents.
The conference proper didn't start until today and I will write about today later. However yesterday the National Convention met, in a very useful meeting. I hadn't attended the National
Convention previously and its essentially the time when all the Association chairmen meet, along with the regional officers.
We had some useful presentations from senior members of the convention and then briefings from George Osborn and Caroline Spelman. George covered the election planning made by the Party. As some of it was obviously sensitive info, I won't write anymore on it but happy to tell people!
Quite surprisingly David Cameron came and gave a good pep talk too.
It will be an excellent conference!
