I'll blog about this later, but first I need to complete the party conference trio by going to Manchester. I'll be signing books in the Reading Zone from noon on Tuesday and I'll be down the Beluga bar in the evening (both are in the Bridgewater Hotel).
This is all part of the Freedom Zone fringe meetings and the whole line-up (over 2 days) is impressive. It all looks - dare I say it - much more interesting than anything going on in the main hall and I'll be going to as much as I can.
Politics & Prohibition: Will a Conservative Government challenge the bully state? (Shane Frith, Roger Helmer MP, Brian Monteith, Simon Clark) - 10.15 am Monday
The Inaugural Freedom Dinner: With Daniel Hannan MEP - 8.00 pm Monday
Is there a place for Libertarianism in David Cameron's Conservative party? (Bruce Anderson, Jesse Norman, Michael Rock) - 10.15 am Tuesday
The Sunlight Centre for Open Politics (Paul Staines AKA Guido Fawkes, David Aaronovitch, John Rentoul)
All the events are taking place in the Bridgewater Hotel, Manchester. If you see me there, do come over and say hello.
