The day we got our momentum back
I'm in the not very useful situation of being a blogger with a non-functioning blackberry hence the lack of instant reportage of conference.
Through the muzzy haze induced by a series of vodka martinis consumed until 3am this morning I can however deduce that over the last 48 hours the Labour Party has regained an all important political commodity - momentum.
The PM's actions to deal with the financial crisis have restored his reputation for decisiveness and sound decisiveness as well.
JK Rowling has lifted staff and activist morale with her £1m donation.
Comres shows the Lib Dems on 21% (up 4%), Labour on 27% (up 2) and the Tories on 39% (down 5) - a Tory lead of 12% not the 19% shown in their last poll - a difference that is worth 50 seats in a General Election.
A proper poll by YouGov - as opposed to a shonky one by labourhome - of Labour members shows there is no appetite for a change of Leader at the grassroots.
We are back in the game, and if senior figures in the Party regain their political self-confidence and stop trying to hedge their bets about Gordon's leadership, we could still win it.
