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?”
@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”
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.
Boris Johnson being papperazied like a celebrity on arrival at the Conservative Conference.
