The main theme of the debates today was ‘The Promise of Britain’ which ended with Ed Miliband’s Leaders Speech. The speech was obviously well received by the audience but had a lot of substance and was worth listening to again later on Newsnight. The sunny terrace of the venue overlooking the Mersey was packed after the speech with delegates discussing predator vs producer companies, ‘something for something’ and other details from the speech. One of the fringe highlights tonight was a Beatles Tribute band at the Cavern Club by the Save our Pubs and Clubs campaign.
