Final day dawns. I check out the exhibition but the highlight of the morning is the text from the Eastern Region press officer telling me to be at a certain room at a certain time! Who is in the room?
It's Hazel Blears a Home Office minister with responsibility for anti-social behaviour (amongst other things) and a bunch of candidates. Quick photo. Michael Lord is "a real old Tory" she says.
I wander through "The Lanes" of Brighton and pick up lunch before coming back for the afternoon session. It's a last rallying session. John Prescott gives the final speech. He mentions Jaguar - only one he says! He bashes the Tories a bit and says we have met all the pledges from 1997 and 2001.
He picks a quote from Bill Clinton:
“Compassionate: that’s the rhetoric. Conservative: that’s the reality"
And he finishes up:
"if there’s one thing I’ve learned in politics; it’s that we must fight for every vote. Let’s get to it."
An opera singer (Suzannah Clarke of Middlesbrough, who worked at the steel works in Redcar before making a career in opera) takes the stage in a red dress and leads us in the Red Flag and then Jerusalem.
And that's it all over.
