Conservatives, Patriotic?

The agenda for the Conservative Party conference has now been published and can be viewed here, courtesy of their website.

One omission that is immediately noticable is the subject of 'Europe' and EU membership. One doubts whether it will even get a mention - maybe one sentence? - during the Defence and Foreign Affairs debate on Wednesday morning.

Oh, there is plenty of discussion about the Big Society, the Environment & Climate Change, Devolved Nations and New Politics and People Power - but of Europe and the EU: Zilch, Nada, Nothing, F'All!

And this from the conference of a party that considers itself 'patriotic'!
