Lib Dem conference latest: bees buzz off as BBC backed in ballot

bee swarm July 15 1

I arrived at conference this morning with, for me, an unusual interest in the Conference Daily Announcements, a daily publication all about the debates and amendments. I thumbed through looking for the results of the ballot on emergency motions. Sadly, the one about the bees did not get selected. It was beaten by, among others, a call to protect the BBC. As I pointed out to people, we can live without the BBC, but we can't live without the bees! I headed to the over-priced coffee bar to console myself. But at least I don't need to write a speech!
