Well once we started winning.

The Southport delegation had a good conference. Over 20 of us turned up-surely the biggest delegation in living memory- even bigger than when the Conference/Assembly was in Southport. (Please note Conference Committee we'd love to welcome you back to our new improved facilities.)

There were a number of awards and competitions we were involved in. Firstly the ALDC campaigner awards-where this photo was taken. We had no luck there. Then the were the BOTY's-where we were shortlisted but no luck there either. Congratulation to the Lanson Boy -to whom we have 'linked before- who won on our category with his talk of choughs and All Blacks. It was also good to meet Mark Valladares from Liberal Bureaucracy whose blog by a Parish Councillor surely deserved recognition in a category all of its own. Anyway still no luck. We moved on to the Penhaligon Awards. Nigel Ashton gave a presentation in a cramped room in the Jury's Inn which wowed the judges and we shared the prize with Suffolk Coastal. Well done to the team. What is the Penhaligon award? Well it's not about baking seed cakes-David once spoke up for the 'seedcake members' who didn't ever formal join the party but who were loyal supporters. More details and photos to follow when those more intimately involved get them to me. And then I won a bottle of whisky-nicely boxed in a House of Commons packaging and signed by the former chair of Thameside YL's

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
