Welsh Conservative Conference #2
Saturday, March 03, 2007
Having spent the daylight hours at the Tories' big day out, I can confirm that the biggest talking point is still the free light bulbs.
William Hague delivered a good speech. But it was about Mirek Topolanek so nobody cared.
Francis Maude revealed the Tories' latest Gordon Brown metaphor: 'the big clunking spider at the centre of the Labour web'. (I wonder how many overpaid speech writers it took to come up with that?)
And Shadow Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan took a swipe at Rhodri Morgan, the 'Worzel Gummidge of Welsh politics. She also came up with a new nickname for Peter Hain - 'Mr three jobs, one ballroom and an aga Hain'. Can't see that one sticking.
Tomorrow: Cameron. After a wet opening day - I arrived damper than a Brynle Williams armpit - let's hope he brings the sunshine with him.

Sorry, BB, but did you catch what Hague had to say about Mirek?

"We belive Britain should be the adovate of Europe's urgent reform, and next Tuesday in Brussels David Cameron and I will join with the new Czech Prime Minister, Mirek Topolanek , to adocate a Europe which concentrates on opening up trade, becoming more competitive and safe-guarding the environment, whil recognising that it does not have too little power over the nation states; it has too much."
Something like that:)
