Bournemouth fashion week

Patrick Wintour reports from the Labour Party Conference,

Gordon Brown left Bournemouth last night having completed a daring incursion into Tory heartlands, stealing item after item of Conservative clothing until it was unclear if anything was going to be left at all in David Cameron's wardrobe next week.

From security to patriotism to the deportation of criminal immigrants, concerns over TV violence and the promise of more matrons to tackle dirty hospitals, Mr Brown's team at times was in danger of morphing into William Hague, or more precisely Michael Howard circa 2005.

Whilst I have no doubt that this is a devastatingly effective electoral tactic, the old leftie in me can't help wondering if this is quite what Keir Hardie had in mind.
