Quentin does it from the heart...

Brilliant speech here at Bournemouth from Labour's newest MP - Quentin Davies, member for Stamford and Grantham.

No notes. From the heart. The best endorsement of Gordon Brown as having the strength and conviction to meet the challenges ahead - and destruction of David Cameron's all-spin and froth. Labour for the many. Unchanged Tories as ever for the few.

Standing ovation.

Welcome to Labour Quentin...!

UPDATE: Telegraph confirms standing ovation and quotes from the QD speech...

It's all a bit content-free.

Does he have anything to say?

Perhaps they should just play light music.

Quentin was laughed off the stage by Dennis Skinner and a number of other delegates. Presumably laughing at the sight of his toe curling hypocrisy.

The Times carried a nice bit on it today, but I didn't hear the speech so I don't know how fair it is.

Hey Phil, no-one likes a pedant but I thought Virendra Sharma was the newest Labour MP?

Geoffrey Brooking said...

Phil- Why are you cutting out some of my comments.

They aren't exactly defamatory.
