There goes the diet...


Party conferences are never good for your health- late nights, little sleep, and copious alcohol consumption all contribute to some very poorly-looking people by the end of the week. I'm more concerned about the effect on my waistline, however. Not only did I go and sample a hearty Brummie curry with a BBC producer last night, but my hotel is situated a couple of miles outside the City Centre, in Bournville, home of Cadbury's chocolate factory. It's a beautiful suburban village, and a monument to what David Cameron would today call corporate social responsibility, having been built by the Cadburys to improve the living conditions of their workers. There are no pubs, reflecting the Cadbury Quaker tradition, but oh, the temptation of chocolate...
