UPDATE : The title came from an original idea by Pillars. Who would have been credited sooner had Guido been able to remember who gave him the idea.
Then it will be on to the “Prohibition speakeasy party” being hosted by The Free Society, an offshoot of the smokers’ lobby group Forest. “The Free Society” is being launched to campaign for less government interference in people’s lives – as well as fags, they’ll be fighting for foie gras, boozing and motoring. Guido will be driving down for the promised free champagne, vodka cocktails and “politically-incorrect canapes” and to support this profoundly worthwhile cause.
Praises McCain – cracks about Labour having the last president at their conference and the Tories having the next.
More stand-up about Labour’s in-fighting. It is a bit slow. Waffling on about the centre-ground. Building on the centre. Centre is where it is at –
middle of nowhere social responsibility is what Liberal Conservativism is all about…
Attacks bureaucracy of New Labour’s statist solutions [to applause], lists some of Labour’s “hubristic failures of big government”, says society not the same thing as the state – “Social responsibility is not state responsibility” - praises public sector “professionals” – attacks centralised plans and contrasts with localised social responsibility.
[A bit of a yawn here] Something about building a new house in the new centre in the new century… err, optimistic and ready to win.
Things can only get better… “Let sunshine win the day…”
If you want to know what I’m all about, I can explain it one word. That word is optimism. I am optimistic about human nature. That’s why I will trust people to do the right thing. Labour are pessimists. They think that without their guidance, people will do the wrong thing. That’s why they want to regulate and control. So let us show clearly which side we are on. Let optimism beat pessimism. Let sunshine win the day. And let everyone know that the Conservative Party is ready. Ready to serve. Ready to fight. Ready to win.

Earlsfield resident Olivia Seccombe writing to the Wandsworth Guardian:
“I would like to question the judgement of Tooting’s Member of Parliament, Sadiq Khan, now Babar Ahmad has been found guilty of running websites that allegedly sought to raise money, recruit fighters and seek equipment for terrorists in Afghanistan and Chechnya… Now this man has been found guilty – after a full and fair trial in the States – I would like Mr Khan to answer firstly, what his concerns with the legal process were and secondly, why he spent so much time campaigning for this man when he should have been representing Tooting in Parliament?”
