Over in Glasgow today for the Scottish Labour conference - a host of excellent speeches and debates, but Gordon Brown certainly stole the show with a very assured performance ... I only hope he keeps the passion, and the general tone, that I heard today going right through the next few weeks!
And, of course, Alistair was as steady and confident as ever - maybe someone had told him about yesterday's ComRes poll?
For an election that's going to be fought on economic issues, the figures below have to be good news for Labour - if they can be maintained for the weeks ahead:
Q.1 Putting your party allegiance aside, who do you trust most to steer Britain's economy through the current downturn?

Nick Clegg & Vince Cable 13%
Don't know 27%
Q.2 Putting your party allegiance aside, do you think this budget will be...
