Alright politics runs 366 days a day, but everyone knows the season like football begins seriously in September with the Conferences and the return of Parliament. Everything crammed in before xmas.
So coming up is the Manchester Co-op Party trip down the Manchester Ship Canal - forty people on a boat and no stops until Pier Head in Liverpool. That's this Sunday 24th August. The annual conference is 11th thru 13th September back at Memorial Hall, London - so some reports from that.....blogging returns, and thanks to reader Michael for the lovely photo of "Book of Party Games" (circa 1930's - which you can still play if you follow the rules).
