I thought the last word on the Labour Party Conference should be a blogger’s word. As the politics bandwagon packed up and moved onto Birmingham for the Tories to take centre stage, more than 200 people turned out for Left Question Time – the finale of the Convention of the Left, which ran alongside the Labour Party conference here in Manchester.
Culture Vulture was there – but the expected George Galloway wasn’t.
“Perhaps Big Brother and Talk Radio’s George Galloway would have felt uncomfortable down amongst the common people. Because the convention had no platforms.
Well-known panellists – like would-be Labour leader John McDonnell and trade union baron Mark Serwotka – sat at ground level with the audience around them” noted Mr or Ms Vulture.
But surely the cat suit wearing, milk lapping politician doesn’t need a stage in order to perform?
Whatever the reason for his absence the crowd was apparently more than adequately entertained/informed by replacement Clive Serle, the Manchester Respect Renewal activist Clive Searle who, Culture Vulture observed, held his own with the revolutionary elite – despite never having been the victim of a tabloid sting.
