'Open the doors!'

So shouted a steward at the ICC and the hordes of Tory faithful, media and guests descended on the hall for David Cameron's speech. I was lucky enough to be picked out for a reserved seat on the aisle right near the front- a far better seat than I ever managed when I was a Tory staffer. Perhaps life on the outside ain't so bad after all. As for the speech itself, David Cameron has a tough act to follow - himself. After his barnstorming rallying cry last year and his legendary leadership speech in 2005, expectations are high, and the economic crisis makes it a difficult tone to get right. Knowing what a class act the man is, I have no doubt he can pull it off. Sorry if that sounds slavishly sychophantic, but it's true.
