The Independent Online
GOOD DAY

Gordon Brown, whose speech was so passionate that it gave cynics ammunition to continue speculation about his leadership ambitions.

BAD DAY

Alistair Darling, whose proposals for welfare failed to win him a standing ovation.

REBEL OF THE DAY

Delegates who caused mayhem when they were not allowed to refer back a section of the policy document on Private Finance Initiatives.

SOUNDBITE OF THE DAY

Baroness Jay: "Ignore the press chat that New Labour is laddish with football at its centre. I may be a grandma rather than a lad and may not know every football result, but I'm certainly not excluded."

BEST FRINGE MEETING

The Independent's Great Britain debate, on the state of the post-devolution union, featuring Jack Straw.

BEST PARTY

Many to choose from but The Independent's event was, of course, the hippest one in town.
