Lib Dem Conference: HARROGATE HIGHLIGHTS

HERO OF THE WEEK

Paddy Ashdown, a dignified exit after 11 years at the helm of the party. Delegates were missing his vision after yesterday's leader speech.

VILLAIN OF THE WEEK

Simon Hughes, out of favour and in the party's doghouse after "unhelpful" comments about Charles Kennedy's lack of policy.

IMAGE OF THE WEEK

No doubt about this one, Jane Ashdown crying in her hanky during Paddy's farewell speech to the faithful.

REBEL OF THE WEEK

Still Alan Sherwell, who chaired the GM debate, for telling Charles Kennedy to wind up his speech.

CLAPOMETER WINNER

The new party leader reached over 90 dbls during his 5 minute ten seconds standing ovation after his keynote address.

CLAPOMETER LOSER

Unfortunately also Mr Kennedy when he just about reached 45 dcbl after his intervention during the GM debate.
