The comment below is currently on the main page of ConservativeHome. The original comment actually makes reference to my post the other day as well. It's good I think that the view is being aired prominently on ConservativeHome though. If the party, and this is true for all of them I think, want to get the absolute maximum attendance, the ability to register for parts rather than just all of the conference would be a good idea.
As I said the other day, many people don't have the ability to take the whole three days out of their week to travel off somewhere and stay in a hotel. That doesn't mean though that they don't want to be able to have the opportunity to go.
I would be interested to hear the views of the Labour and Lib Dem supporters who read this blog as well, because I'll readily admit I am assuming that the other two main parties don't do day passes as well. Can anyone confirm if that is the case? In fact, can any Labour member register for the conference or is it delegates from CLPs only?
