I have operated, at times, from a position of pure faith in my party over the past two years but Labour are repaying that and truly coming through at conference. There is a buzz of change in the air that can be felt far beyond Liverpool.

The serious workforce investment we need to build an NHS fit for the future 馃憞馃徎
Labour would train 5,000 new health visitors, create an extra 10,000 nursing and midwifery placements each year, and double the number of medical school places. We'd pay for it by reversing the cut of the 45% additional rate of income tax.

Key message from @AlexNorrisNN - community power is not a nice to have, it's fundamental. And it's about pushing back against political apathy and alienation which is such a feature of our politics today.

Which would mean the Tories having five PMs in just over 6 years #chaoswith
Fury from a Tory MP who says talk of no confidence letters going in is not misplaced. "My colleagues will rule nothing in and rule nothing out," they say. "There will come a time where people have to say 鈥業 know it鈥檒l make us look chaotic, but we can鈥檛 go on like this."
