Forum discussion: Labour Party conference

I’m in Manchester at the moment for the Labour Party conference and I’ve just spent the last few hours following DEFRA secretary Hilary Benn to various fringe meetings and Q&A sessions.

It felt like he said a lot in all that time, but now I’m writing my notes back I’ve realised there wasn’t a great deal of substance to what he said – I’m tempted to say he was being a typical politician but I’m trying not to be cynical…

He did give a ringing endorsement of Gordon Brown though – I suppose that means he hasn’t got his eye on the top job Emoticon confused
