“Sex, gaffes and silly stunts - it’s party (conference) time again and Westminster’s circus is heading off to the coast.”

Participating in the Guardian fringe debate at the Lib Dem conference on Mon 20th will be Sarah Teather. “Liberty v equality: which do the Liberal Democrats want?”

Simon Hoggart chairs a panel of Sir Menzies Campbell, Nick Clegg, Sarah Teather MP and Mark Oaten MP.
