Back from Birmingham. There is so much to do at Conference it just passes in a blur. Late nights and early mornings. I was up to do Radio Manchester interviews at 8am on Monday and even earlier at 7am today.
As usual there were several new announcements of policy and again as usual some attracted a lot more publicity than others! The proposal to remove the child benefit from higher rate tax payers will not be welcomed by those affected but it is further proof that the Conservatives are going to be tough but fair. Everyone will be affected but the NHS will be protected and those who are most vulnerable must be protected too. Full details of all the proposals can be found on the main Conservative Party website at www.conservatives.com
