There’s always a bit of an irony with blogging and party conferences — at the time when the media are most looking for reaction from activists to the leader’s speech most of them are hot-footing it to the train station to return to their normal lives outside the conference bubble.
However, a few Lib Dems have had chance to put finger to keyboard in response to Nick Clegg’s address to close the Liberal Democrat conference in Birmingham. Here are those I’ve spotted so far on the Aggregator…
- Go back to your constituencies and prepare for the long haul… (Yellow Tinted Spectacles)
- Clegg commits shared parental leave as Govt policy-Yay! (Mat Bowles)
- The Most Controversial Thing to Come Out of Nick Clegg’s Speech to #ldconf (Jennie Rigg)
- Nick Clegg: We will tear down every barrier our children face (Caron Lindsay)
And of course my Co-Editor Mark Pack blogged his reaction here on Lib Dem Voice earlier.
Apologies if I’ve missed anyone; please add links below for any I’ve missed or which are posted subsequently.
Oh, and here are a selection of Liberal Tweets:
