It’s my first full strength, week long autumn political conference, where I shall be amongst my fellow Liberal Democrats, free to talk politics without fear of bring the conversation to a grinding halt.
I’m looking forward to it. The anticipation has already had me blogging fairly extensively as I try to internalise all the thoughts I’ve had since I joined just over a year ago. It’s a slippery slope, it seems, from suspicion of politics to addiction. Lean into the curves and make a splash, I say!
Curries and lunches and video shoots have been arranged. Efforts to improve the NHS reforms will be supported. I’m even lined up to speak in favour of an amendment or two.
The earth will not be shattered. But a little bit of world changing will be going on; it’s good to be a part of it.
