Suggest strikes and swan about in 5* luxury must be #TUC2010

I was fortunate enough to be delivering a social media cafe at a conference in Manchester.  The hotel was swarming with staff looking after the speakers and delegates for the TUC conference.

A strikingly beautiful luxurious building doesn’t strike me as the most ideal venue for those advocating belt tightening… and the cost of the breakfast was probably a days wages to some of their members… with the £300 a night rate way out of the reach of most…

If I had the guts to take a picture of one of the speakers looking like a modern day greek god letting it all hang out on a settee in the reception area I would have been rich selling it to the newspapers… sadly I couldn’t lower myself that far…

Smacks of one rule for them…
