Found the following piece on page 7 of the current issue of Private Eye, discussing the planned goings on at the forthcoming ruling Labour Party's autumn conference in Manchester. I thought you might be interested.

If you missed it at the LibDem conference, the Mobile Operators Association are also sponsoring the establishment /big biz counter to informed criticism (or 'media scare stories' as they prefer to call them), at both the other main UK autumn Party conferences. Note the other participants - Colin Blakemore, who obligingly helped out Airwave repel health objections during their hour of need, Sir John 'GM' Krebs and Ben 'Bad Science' Goldarce. The Social Market Foundation - is a Blairite pro-market 'think tank', see - http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Social_Market_Foundation
