Labour cancel spring conference ? Iranian press say

So is this the answer to the what's Jack Straw up to question ? Ans creating a great day to bury news about the Labour Party.

I can't believe I'm becoming aware of this through the Islamic Republic News Agency. But that's the case - they report that "Labor's general secretary Peter Watt said that the party was abandoning its conference in February that was due to take place in Glasgow and replacing it with a series of smaller events around the country.

Nope - seems it was on the BBC after all - hidden away here.

They report Labour as saying "Blogs and podcasts would be used to broaden "online engagement" with the new "interactive party", ". Sounds unlikely given their media control freak attitude to life.
