A small note about the "secret" Liberal Democrat conference

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the decision to exclude the media from today’s Liberal Democrat special conference in Birmingham has resulted in some calling it “secret” or “closed”.

So it’s worth briefly noting for the record that the organisers expected (and, those I spoke to, even wanted) the event, debating the idea of the Liberal Democrats going into a coalition government with the Conservatives, to be covered by twitterers and bloggers.

It’s only “secret” if you ignore the internet.
