Well, Kathleen is planning to go tomorrow morning to the Cameron Direct event. Your disembodied questions will not be in vain, since although the format of the even will not permit three questions from one person, David Cameron will adress your questions directly over the weekend and we’ll have his direct responses on YouTube by Monday or Tuesday next week. So panic over!
There’ll be lots of others there too. O’Neill will certainly be there. Checkov, I’m not sure… Burke’s Corner being the Ur Ulster Tory of them all should make it, unless he’s too busy elsewhere. And ignited is going to be there too, he hopes with an open thread… All good blogs, and all with a keen understanding of what they are up…
As I said yesterday, I’ll probably be Twittering the live feed… Can I suggest all twitters use a more generic #CamDir and we’ll try to find a way to amalgamate them in one page. And if you are tweeting the Ulster Unionist Conference, we’ll pick you up with the tag #UUPCon! I want this to be a trial for how we cover all the parties, not just the Tories and the UUP. The more varied the voices the better!
