Comment 15 here wonders why I haven’t blogged the party conference. The answer is that I wasn’t there, unfortunately I could only make the UUC on Friday night. Gareth Gordon has a pretty good report on the BBC, which they have online here. The most interesting element of course being the invitation of a Nationalist to address conference, who finished by using the traditional Unionist battle cry – no surrender.
I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
