GOOD DAY

Tony Blair, of course. That is a perk of the top job.

BAD DAY

Fox-hunters: Looked out-of touch when the Prime Minister joked about them in his key address.

REBEL OF THE DAY

Ken Livingstone: He said he only rebelled "once a day" when they told him Millbank was drawing up a disloyalty dossier about him.

SOUNDBITE OF THE DAY

Tony Blair on being Prime Minister, with shades of Prince Hal: "It's a big job. A lonely job. The red boxes [of Government papers] really do come at you day and night, papers to read, decisions to make."

BEST FRINGE MEETING

Annual Tribune rally where Tony Booth, Rhodri Morgan and Tony Benn appealed to the left-wing of the party.

BEST PARTY

Jack Straw and Rodney Bickerstaffe were due to boogie at the "Asia Nite" at the Highcliff Hotel.
