Having been back from Harrogate for over 36 hours, dealing with the usual tiredness, trying to catch up on all those missed tasks, dealing with Monday, and trying to fit in catching up on the media coverage and other peoples posts, I finally get to blog. However, although there are several half formed posts in my head, I’m finding it difficult pull out from the fog in my brain the important themes as to what it all means. A feeling increased by the disparity between much of the media coverage and my experience on the ground.
However, I have one tentative conclusion to put forward; the significance of this Spring conference appears to be only becoming apparent to those who were there until after they got home. I mean, of course, the coalition stuff. Hélène Mulholland in her piece on Guardian Unlimited seems to capture the spirit of that better than any other bit of journalism I’ve yet had time to see.
More from me, trivial and non-trivial, on conference during the week, I hope.
