Party conference season swept the nation last week – although it was rather more sober than most students may imagine a party to be.

Satirical Tweets from the week:
@David_Scameron “I don’t defend privilege, I spread it. Because it’s that simple. Work hard on your ghastly council estate & you too will be educated at Eton”

@NickCleggsFair “@David_Cameron I’ve ironed the paper and cleaned all your shoes, sir. Will you be requiring me for anything else tonight?”

@Dalek MP on Twitter

@DalekMP “Who the hell decided to hold a Dalek party conference in a building with so many f***ing stairs? My anti-grav upgrade is knackered. #cpc12”


Worst Joke:
Clegg: “at last year’s party conference they admitted that you can’t in fact make Blue go Green. You have to add Yellow. And that’s exactly what we’re doing.

Best Joke:
Boris Johnson being papperazied like a celebrity on arrival at the Conservative Conference.
