8 days - all the politics.

It's all going off right now.

This afternoon, Theresa May makes her speech. She's be supported in Florence by the great and the good of the Conservative Party.

This weekend, it's the Labour Party Conference. Expect running battles between different factions of the party. Momentum are instructing its members on how to vote in debates. Sadiq Khan has managed to force his way onto the main stage. We'll hear opinions and speeches from across the spectrum of the left.

Next Friday, UKIP have their annual conference - including the announcement of a new leader. 

All in all? We're going to hear voices and opinions from across the political spectrum on a very wide range of issues.  Exciting, huh?

Saturday - The Labour Party doesn't officially start until Sunday, but it's the Women's Labour Party Conference today. For the first time, this will have an actual impact on official Labour Party Conference. 

Sunday - As always, Sunday starts with the TV politics shows. Marr should have a Labour big hitter or two. Peston is back on ITV. The Sunday Politics had a good start with its new host last week. All pretty exciting.

Meanwhile, in Brighton, Labour kick off their conference. 11.20 sees a speech on Protecting Our Communities. I'd have thought that Diane Abbott would be delivering it, but can't find confirmation of it.

Monday - Day 2 of Labour Conference, the highlight of the day will be John McDonnell's speech at 12.15. It's called 'Living Standards and Strong Economy'.

Tuesday - Tom Watson dominates today - he's on a bit later at 5pm. 

Wednesday -  It's Jeremy Corbyn Day. He's on at 12.15. 

Thursday - Phew. We can all have a little rest. 

Friday - OK. So UKIP aren't as big a force as they were 18 months ago. Possibly not even as big as they were a year ago. But they will gather some attention for their conference in Torquay today. Not least because they will announce their new leader. Whoever it is, they will have a tough job.
If you open this before Theresa May takes to her feet to deliver her speech this afternoon, you might like to play a bit of Friday afternoon bingo...
