William Hague not to address Lib Dem Conference

William Hague (or any other senior Tories) will not be addressing the Liberal Democrat Autumn Conference in Liverpool next month.

According to Liberal Democrat Voice,

‘A party spokesman said:

“William Hague is not part of the conference agenda and I can confirm that he has not been asked to speak at the Liberal Democrat conference. No Conservative ministers have ever been approached to speak at our conference.

Fringe events are still being finalised, and it is of course possible that an independent group may have invited Mr Hague to speak at their Fringe event.”‘

This is in response to the Dail Mail’s assertion that,

“William Hague is being lined up to speak at the Liberal Democrats’ annual conference next month in a move designed to cement relations between the coalition partners.”

Which just goes to prove (again) that you can’t believe anything everything you read in the Daily Mail papers.
