Lib-Dem bashing finally breaks out
In stark contrast to the Liberal Democrat conference, where attacks on the Tories seemed to come at the rate of one an hour, the Conservative gathering has been notable for a lack of bile thrown at the yellow corner.
But the entente cordiale has finally broken thanks to MEP Martin Callanan, Tory leader in the European parliament.
I've seen a copy of his speech and there is a cracking passage about Chris Huhne's fondness for the euro.
Mr Callanan mentions the Lib-Dem Energy Secretary's book making the case for the single currency, which is apparently availble new on Amazon for £99 or second hand for 1p.
"I wouldn't recommend that you spend a penny on it," the speech says.
"Or on second thoughts, maybe spending a penny on it is exactly what it deserves."
After reading a couple of pro-euro passages from it, Mr Callanan goes on: "Now you will understand how relieved I am that in Europe we don’t have to be in coalition with the Liberal Democrats."
Mr Bone will be jealous.
