Tory Troll at the Liberal Conspiracy/CIF Conference

Blogging will take a little longer today as I'm nursing a monster hangover from last night's Liberal Conspiracy/Comment is Free hosted conference/rantaphon/piss-up.

Notable attendees included Mr Stop Boris and the Boris Watchers, the boys from Scribo Ergo Sum, Sadie Smith, Dave Cole, Alex Hilton, Sunny Hundal and of course your humble narrator.

Much will be written I'm sure, about what the event heralded for the future of the liberal-left and the continuing patriarchal dominance of the blogosphere, but personally I just thought it was a great chance to chat politics with like-minded bloggers.

So a big big thanks should go out to Sunny for running the show, and to Georgina Henry and the Guardian for putting on such a tasty and thirst-quenching spread. 

Much more vital and serious discussion will take place about it all over there I'm sure, but for now the Troll must seek out some non-alcoholic fluids and/or pork-based snacks. Back soon.
Thanks to Sunny for the pictures.

Sounds like a top night with some top bloggers. I always find that the best cure for a hangover is your favourite brand of cola topped off with a smidgen of whisky.

Thanks Chris. Any other suggestions from readers would be gratefully received. It's clinging on for dear life at the moment.

Good to meet you last night, Tory Troll.

I'd recommend massive quantities of fruit juice. Either that or getting drunk again, anyway.

The Tory Troll said...

Thanks Ben. It was good to meet you too. Fruit juice would probably be the best option I would think but sadly it would involve me crawling down to the local shop and I can't quite face that yet. If things don't improve by tonight then I will, as you say, have to consider the nuclear option. It's a hard life.

Nice to meet everyone last night. I suggest hot, sweet tea, imbibed in massive quantities. And possibly sleep, or at least lying down in a darkened room...

Cheers again for the pint!

The Tory Troll said...

No problem. I hope I wasn't spouting too much blathering crap.

Revamp said...

Haha, not at all! It was a very fun conversation and an apt conclusion to a very fun day.

My god, you lot are ugly! It looks like a serial killer convention.

I think you're underestimating the attractiveness of serial killers.
