Parliament hasn't been meeting while the party conferences have been taking place. Last week, I was in Brighton attending Labour's conference. This week, the Conservatives held their conference here in Manchester.

You won't have failed to notice the difference between the two events. Labour's conference was exciting, packed out for the main speeches, and full to bursting at the fringe meetings I attended, on everything from tackling homelessness to the impact of Brexit. Major announcements on public sector pay, a national education service, and a cap on credit card interest were received enthusiastically.
