Liberal Democrats in Hinckley and Bosworth prepare for conference

February 26, 2009 6:00 PM

Liberal Democrats in Hinckley and Bosworth will soon be packing their bags to head off to the party's spring conference in Harrogate. Doors to the conference will open on the evening of Friday 6th March. It will close on Sunday 8th with a speech from party leader, Nick Clegg MP.

Those attending from Hinckley and Bosworth include Michael Mullaney Bosworth Liberal Democrats parliamentary spokesman.

"Local members are really looking forward to going to the conference," said Michael Mullaney. "There are some great debates coming up and the chance to refresh our campaigning on local issues.

"Our Shadow Chancellor Vince Cable will be talking on the economy and conference will be rounded off with a speech by Nick Clegg."

There will be debates on reforming the banks and the financial sector, skills and higher education, schools, prisons and childcare.

In addition to Nick Clegg and Vince Cable, there will be a speech by Howard Dean, who campaigned to win the US Presidential nomination for the Democrats in 2004. Though Mr Dean did not win the nomination, he is widely regarded as having dramatically changed and improved campaigning on the internet.

"This will all make for an interesting conference," said Michael Mullaney
