Former leader speaks
CK looks great. Thinner and healthier. No notes? Still an excellent speaker. His speech:
Addressing conf not media. Will stay loyal to leadership. Thanks to members and my wife for their support. Think we did well to get more MPs and a million more votes. This at a time when Lab lost 4m votes and Tory 1m. Ours only increase. Encouraging. Lib Dems are a catalyst – interaction speeds up process of change without changing itself. (not sure aldes will agree)
We hold true to principles whatever confronts us. Our principles will see up through:
1 social justice. Fair tax. Redistribution. Not unfettered markets.
2 political reform. PR for many elections. We kept pr alive, must keep house of lords campaign alive. More regionalism also important. Proper federal UK our aim. The road to Welsh parliament. Scotland – Willie Rennie, hooray. Scottish Parliamentary Party, wow. Outright victory for LDs on cards.
3 environmental agenda. Emphasis on consumption tax. Only a start. Vital issue for planet. We are greenest party and must do more
(timing light turned amber and was hastily extinguished)
4 international issues. Legacy of iraq. Vindicated in our decisions. Policy a tragedy that eats at our international integrity. Damnable closeness to Bush. On a good day, only 4/10 voted for Thatcher. Same applies for Bush who doesn’t command majority support in US. Must not become anti-Americanism. Meeting Russian politician who will address conference later. Russia vital geopolitically and for energy. Europe. Plea: speak confidently and persuasively. Lets not hold back, it defines us. Be more pro.
Our approach then, the best. Labour out of ideas. Tories making virtue of having no ideas. Labour – gone mad? I got better reception at Tuc than Lab PM. Should I talk to WI!? Brown faces poisonous inheritance. Like major or callahan. Deputy leadership of lab v entertaining. Prescott hard act to follow. To Cameron: one Blair is quite enough thanks. Cameron floats like butterfly on policy but local level still stings like bee.
A lot of commentators are trying to tell our story for us. They think we’ll lose seats and votes but gain influence. They do not have our long term interests at heart. but we independent and confident and will come out better and stronger next election. We owe it to ourselves, our children, and our country.
(standing ovation. Clip of Campbell applauding. Ck taps watch and leaves stage with delegates wanting more)
