>Best Speeches of Conference

>Well, I’ll be honest, I haven’t managed to watch every single hour of Conference, but out of the bit I’ve seen, here are the speeches I thought were good.

The one which impressed me most was by probably the furthest travelled conference rep. Dominique Rommel from Shetland eloquently spelled out the realities of life in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland where a 4 x 4 is a necessity in the battle against the vicious Winters. If you have any doubt as to the veracity of her comments, I can only suggest that you plan to spend November to March on the Scottish Island of your choice.

In That Tax Debate Paul Holmes to my surprise supported The Leadership with the quality of speech that almost changed my mind about the proposals.

Arnie Gibbons was sound as ever and I loved his comment, quoted on the BBC website, that “we don’t have many populist policies. Why ditch one of the few good ones?”

I would have loved to have written a glowing account of the Scottish Presentation. I had set the video to tape it from BBC Parliament, but, unfortunately, my daughter, who was on holiday from school, changed the channel and I got 6 hours of Discovery Kids instead.

  1. >The Scottish Presentation was good Caron. As Nicol said up last it was goo to see the youth of the party referring to Ross, before adding in Willie and Jo.It was very positive, very upbeat looking to the future of Scotland and showing the rest how to reach for the best that is yet to come, to paraphase another Scottish speaker.
