Despite its length, my blog post over the weekend about the security checks being carried out for Liberal Democrat conference, didn’t go through all the issues in equal detail. So here to make up for some of the areas I wrote less about are some excellent blog posts written by others:
- Over on his blog, Stephen Glenn explains how slow accreditation can make conference more expensive for people by giving details based on his own situation.
- Zoe O’Connell has dug out the figures which show how problematic the checks being used are for transgendered people, as they rely on a system that seems prone to mistakes which out them (and see this where Sarah explains why the system means she’s decided not to come to conference).
And finally, from people who have got their accreditation through today, I hear that Conference Office have changed their email to look remarkably similar to my suggestion. Good for them on reacting positively to feedback.
