Conference surprises

Lobbydog has a briefing with Lord Mandelson later on where he will no doubt try and shape media coverage for the days before Labour conference.

But there are a couple of surprises pending that might rain on all his hard work.

Firstly a new book is coming out tomorrow promising some sort of political scandal, see Iain Dale’s post, though details are as of yet sketchy.

Secondly Dispatches is making a programme about what MPs did on their holidays which will be broadcast on the Monday of the conference.

The MP that told me, who had been contacted by the programme, had only taken a modest short UK break, but no doubt there will be others who are a little more wary of the show.

The timing is probably no accident so it makes you wonder how interesting a conference opening we’re in for.
