I have just returned from the 2014 Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham, which was one of the most exciting I have been to.
The Prime Minister made an excellent speech, during which he announced plans to cut taxes so that people in work take home more than those on benefits and to reassert the supremacy of Parliament and the UK Supreme Court over the European Court of Human Rights. He also confirmed his promise to the British people of an in/out referendum on our membership of the European Union.
I was privileged to be one of the speakers who introduced the Prime Minister's speech - see below.
