Rural Fylde Conservatives have spent the last 2 days at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton for the Northwest Conservative Conference.  Many speaker gave good speeches on the importance of the Northwest as a key battle ground in outing Labour at Westminster.  David Cameron, George Osborne and William Hague were amongst the best.  Special mention has to go to Paul Maynard, the Candidate for Blackpool North and Cleveleys, who did a remarkable speech.  Shadow Local Government Minister, Eric Pickles, did his trademark speech based on attacking Labour of their nannying tendencies in local government and re-emphasised the Conservatives commitment to the Localism Agenda.
