Labour conference

This Labour conference reminds me of the train wreck of 1997 that I went to after the deserved loss of the General Election in 1997; my favourite moments of this Labour conference are twofold:
On Ed's big day, first there was Harriet Harman on Women’s Hour saying,“We are entirely focused on getting David … err … Ed … elected as PM at next election” and then the speech itself - where he attempted to describe himself as an outsider: as Tim Montgomerie put it:
"Hes an Oxford educated former special advisor [under the Blair goverment, and cabinet member under Gordon Brown]. Hes so far inside he can't see windows"
I am not sure if Ed has ever held a job outside of politics?
