Co-op Conference photo diary

A short recap of of the Co-operative Party Annual Conference.


While some people get ready for Bournemouth, this year’s biggest political event – Co-operative Party Annual Conference – has come and gone. Others have blogged extensively on what happened (and what happened outside), and Lorenzo has condensed conference to an excellent two-minute 40 second video of the whole weekend.
