Hazel has been on Question Time tonight. I'll try to get more a exact quote from the online repeat, but for the moment my paraphrasing should do:
'I've not heard anything over the last couple of weeks on what the Conservatives plan to do about the economic problems we're facing...'
Could that be because over the last couple of weeks we've had the Liberal Democrat and then Labour conferences? Could that also be because the Conservatives have honoured the convention whereby major policy announcements are kept quiet during the conferences of other parties? Remember that convention, Hazel? It was the one Brown broke last year by trying to play politics with the lives of troops by announcing their withdrawal from Iraq in the middle of the Conservative conference.
