Brighton – The Labour Party Conference and ABBA
It is now almost 40 years ago that ABBA won Eurovision in Brighton. However, that was not the reason why I spent time in this beautiful town last week. Instead I was there to attend the Labour Party Conference. I always enjoy going as it is a perfect opportunity to meet a lot of people and detect the latest political trends. The Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband was kind enough to turn up for the international reception to give a short speech. I guess he was rather relieved after having delivered a marathon speech.
As regards ABBA I can assure you that we will be celebrating their 40th anniversary next year. Certain things seem rather timeless.
