As Tory Bear posted on Tuesday, the LabourList drinks at party conference were gatecrashed by a couple of right wing bloggers. Filmed outside the (very nice) Royal Sovereign in Brighton, Scrapbook has blagged exclusive footage of an interview with Tory Bear by Will Straw of Left Foot Forward and Sunny Hundal of Liberal Conspiracy.
