There is a light that never goes out

At the Progress Conference - their new website is here - http://www.progressonline.org.uk/

Excellent speech by Tony Blair - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/5329792.stm - dignified, relaxed, self-deprecating and absolutely clear on the political challenges facing the Party and country and why these matter more than personalities.

He was careful to distance himself from Charles Clarke's name-calling and to refer positively to Brown.

The corridor politics set the same tone - building of bridges and behaving in a more comradely way than last week being the watchwords from both camps.

Maybe there is a chance that the Party can step back from the brink and be self-disciplined and united after all.

On The Progress website: "Bloggers on the left... Luke Akehurst"?!?!? Is there another Luke Akehurst out there somewhere, or is Progress THAT FAR to the right?
