Real leadership

The conference highlight for me so far was this afternoon’s debate on “caring for an elderly population” with several highly moving contributions, including from the author Terry Pratchett who spoke about his battle with Alzheimer’s. It demonstrated the commitment the Party is making to issues that touch the day to day lives of millions of Britons, including my own family, to see this discussion given so much time on the main conference agenda. The session was expertly led and closed by Shadow Health Minister Stephen O’Brien, who along with Andrew Lansley and the rest of the health team, shown throughout the health debates the sort of mastery of their briefs and leadership a future Conservative government will need to show to clear up the mess created by this failing Labour government.
