I’ve joined the annual seaside jaunt that is the Conservative Party Conference. I’m currently sitting on “bloggers row” which is a new area for the party. We are giving advice for new bloggers, reflecting our thoughts on conference as it happens. More and more people appreciate the fact that the Internet can be a tool for real communication between politicians and constituents. Though I was the first in Sutton, I hope that I won’t be the last.

Anyway, this week will be an interesting one. It is “One year on” for David Cameron. Delegates are debating how much progress we are making, what they think of the new party logo (which looks suspiciously like the Sutton Council tree.) and asking the question “Where’s the beef?” in terms of policy.
