The news in the UK has been dominated by rumours about the continued leadership of the Labour Party by Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. [oh, and the financial turmoil that has followed the collapse of Lehman Brothers]. The Labour Party's ruling National Executive Committee will discuss today whether to issue leadership nomination papers - as requested by (a handful) of Labour MPs. The real excitement will come this weekend and next week as the Labour Party holds its conference in Manchester.
I will be at the conference - and (in the early hours of the morning, no doubt) will be posting my observations. But before that I need to complete my marking for the Open University; prepare for a revision day for the OU's 'Individual and the State' law course (W201 in their Law Degree [LL.B.] programme) on Saturday - and prepare for conference. As a result there will be fewer postings this week. Please do keep coming back - but I may not make my target of a post each day until Friday.
But from Friday onwards - join me for a front row seat at the Labour Party Conference.
