Tim Farron in full flow

I sat next to a distinguished Guardian journalist as we listened to Tim Farron's question and answer session on the second day of the Liberal Democrat Conference at Bournemouth.

"We don't want anyone getting a hernia!", said Michael White as I clambered over a seat into the next row at the end of the session. I did not want to disturb him as he committed his thoughts to paper, but now he looked up.

"Did you like that?", I asked referring to the Q&A, not my acrobatics.

"I think he did very well", said Michael White, referring to Tim Farron.

Cameron's offer to Syrian refugees derisory

Syrian refugee children

Paddy Ashdown, writing in the Guardian, has called David Cameron's plan for Syrian refugees derisory and pathetic.

The plan is to take in 20,000 refugees over five years and is totally inadequate.

Paddy Ashdown also says that Isis will not be defeated by killing more Arab Muslims with more western bombs. "What is needed here is more clever diplomacy, not more pointless bombing, and this is where Britain should be taking the lead".
