I had forgotten how energising conference consultative sessions are. They are informal, you can put your hand up, and you feel that you are in the boiler room of policy creation, rather than rubber stamping or rejecting formed policies.
I thoroughly enjoyed this morning’s most stimulating consultative session on immigration, asylum and identity.
Two speakers who stood out for me were:
Anuja Prasher, articulate and passionate. I hope we her speaking in an emergency debate later on the “go home” vans.
Lord Roger Roberts, bless him. As usual, passionate, informed and funny. Do you know the height of the London Eye? Roger pointed out that this question is asked in the national citizenship test. It tickled me, anyway.
