Well the first day of conference is over. I am here as Vauxhall Constituency Labour Party's delegate.
We had a short speech from Gordon Brown before a Cabinet Q&A, with Gordon, Harriet Harman, Yvette Cooper, Alistair Darling and John Hutton. I thought it went well, with a number of questions on the economy and the past turbulent week in markets. PM and cabinet members clearly linked what had happened with the experience of individual people and families throughout the country.
Later on, the PM visited the London Region reception, speaking on a similar theme, including on how we should expose the Tories' lack of viable policies to deal with the issues facing both London and the country as a whole.
