Lembit and Dave
It seems that whilst I was having withdrawal symptoms about not being at Conference the remaining Welsh representatives were squirming with embarrassment as Wales' answer to Chas and Dave took to the stage to busk for money. Apparently, Lembit Opik decided that the best way to conduct the annual appeal was to play his mouth organ and sing with his pal, a man with a beard and an accoustic guitar called Dave, in the hope that somebody would pay them to stop. The Western Mail reports that "Mr Opik and Dave sang about the Brent East victory" whilst "a senior aide stood in the wings and shook her head in horror". Somebody should tell him, we are really pleased about winning Brent East, but not that pleased!
