Meeting The Boss

This conference was all about The Boss. I'm fully expecting Gordon - The Movie as one of the Party Election Broadcasts, mimicking the famous 1987 PEB featuring Neil Kinnock. Gordon was desperate to show that he had a sense of humour, so regularly recycled his carefully scripted stories. These included a story of Mark Twain visiting a frontier town and saying that it was no place for a Puritan and 'I did not long remain one' - used to describe his experience of attending Edinburgh University at the age of just 16 and discovering a haven for gambling and drinking.
