On my way, I was drenched by torrential rain in Queens road, Newbury, and then coming back I was rained on in the same road. In between that, it was dry and sunny. It was the sort of day that takes some thought as to what to wear and carry on a journey, and no amount of planning prepares for all eventualities.
The conference was in London EC2 at the Amnesty International HQ. This is a most impressive building which made a superb conference venue.
It was great to see many old friends and enjoy a positive Smörgåsbord of policy discussion and an impressive list of guest speakers.
