Vote for the bees
Here at Lib Dem conference we get to vote on which emergency motions will be debated later in the week. There are 6 tabled and 3 need to be chosen. There's one about the Conservative government relaxing the ban on certain insecticides which are believed to have been very damaging to honey bees. As a beekeeper I've been drumming up support for the motion but voting closed at 1pm and I'm not yet aware of the result. If the bee motion is given the go ahead, there will be a huge rush from the beekeepers at conference (known to total 3 of us) to be called to speak. Watch this space.
