SDLP: (Still a)live from Newcastle…

Okay, this is our first conference live from the venue so to speak… The interest is mostly on who wins the leadership contest, but I’ll be spending some of my time testing the waters and talked to delegates about that contest, the future of the party and (if I can persuade them) to tell us ‘what the SDLP is for?’ Drop me a line if you want to help moderate the live blog, since I’ll be contributing mostly through Twitter and we need people to let people’s comments come through in a timely manner… If you are tweeting, let us have you stream address and we’ll add it… otherwise, we’re picking up the #SDLP hashtag… (Your killer questions please?)
