Brits beat Aussies (again!)

Today I have been at the North West Conservatives Regional Conference at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium ( of which more later….) and last night I attended the pre-conference reception and dinner in the hotel restaurant which overlooks the pitch. With great good fortune for those Conservatives attending the dinner who were interested in sport rugby league’s World Club Challenge Final match was taking place between St Helens and the Brisbane Broncos. St Helens ran out 18-14 winners in a tense finale. Following on from the one day cricket success it was good to see the Brits on the winning side again.
Conservative Party Leader David Cameron MP attended the pre-dinner reception and was in good spirits when I chatted to him. Our guest Speaker was Jim Hancock the well known political broadcaster in the North West.
