Don Foster MP*

Conference Update

That's the Bath party, not the Baath party! Yesterday at conference, tongue-in-cheek comparisons of Don Foster MP and former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein were being drawn. Today, Don will shift the focus of Conference to safer streets for all of us.

Main ImageEvery party conference needs a stunt of some description, and this year Colchester MP Bob Russell supplied it. He has had packs of playing cards printed bearing the faces of all fifty four Liberal Democrat MPs.

This is a stunt with a good cause, though - all of the proceeds of the 6.50 playing card packs will go towards funding new facilities for the disabled in Bob's constituency office.

In the US's military's card deck, Saddam Hussein, leader of the Ba'ath party was ace of spades. In an unintentional gaff in our deck - Don Foster, of the Bath party, is our very own trump card.

Don assures us the similarities end there.

With the excitement of yesterday's discovery behind him, today Don will move a conference motion calling for safer streets for all.

The motion will be moved at 17.15, and will be broadcast live on BBC Parliament. It will call on the Government to take additional safety measures to tackle the problem of deaths and injuries on the roads by introducing a Road Safety Bill in the next session of Parliament.
