Today I'm giving a speech in Surrey to 20 NHS PCT Chief Executives on public policy reform and this evening I'm talking to Dagenham & Rainham Conservatives. I was a bit worried when I was told they were charging £40 a ticket and thought I might have an audience of two. But all credit to them; they have sold more than 60 tickets. My friend Simon Jones is the candidate there so it will help him raise money for his campaign to oust Jon Cruddas.
So I am likely to have very little time to blog today. My Blackberry has for some reason stopped receiving emails. Vodafone say that its the fault of my email providers and they say it's Vodafone's fault.
So let' s have an open thread today. I will approve comments as often as I can. Discuss what you like, but keep it fair please.
