Birmingham - City of the future...

Birmingham's paper quoted David Cameron as saying the city was "on trial" during the Tory conference - with a successful event leading to future bookings.

But for one Conservative MP at least, whose name we shall spare, the city already seems to have been hung, drawn and quartered.

After the welcome drinks had started to flow he made his way through rowdy Saturday night revellers to queue at a secured hotel bar.

"I'd forgotten just how vile Birmingham is," he commented to his colleagues surveying the drunken scene.

Unfortunately most of the rest of the queue was made up of members of the press.
