Conservative Party Conference – the third day

October 1, 2013 8:14 am

The highlight of today will almost certainly be the speech by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who always manages to dominate headlines at the Conservative Conference. Although he has recently been usurped as the most powerful person in London by Prince George of Cambridge, the Mayor will certainly give everyone his views on the issues of the day.

It was recently reported that Tory grandee Ken Clarke had told Boris Johnson to “cool it” during last year’s Conservative Party conference, as speculation that the Mayor was positioning himself to replace David Cameron reached fever-pitch. Therefore, this year you would expect the Mayor to be better behaved, although with Boris you can really never know what to expect!

Public services dominate the conference afternoon’s sessions with speeches from Michael Gove and Jeremy Hunt. Delegates will look forward to hearing from Gove, who has been seen by party members as one of the Government’s success stories, while Hunt will no doubt want to focus on his plans to turn around failing hospitals.
