This is not quite the end of this year's conference season: Plaid Cymru meet in Aberystwyth on 11 and 12 October, while the SNP get together in Perth from 17 to 20 October. As always, the BBC will be there. But for now, goodbye and thanks for joining us.
There's plenty of analysis from the BBC to catch up on, including Nick Robinson's analysis of the prime minister's choice of words, and dozens of features and analysis pieces from across the conference season in this special report.
And with that, we'll draw our coverage of this year's Conservative Party conference to a close. In his keynote speech, David Cameron promised to create a "land of opportunity for all" and attacked what he called Labour's "1970s-style socialism". He declared: "The land of hope is Tory."
1406 Danny Finkelstein of The Times
tells the BBC: "I know what a bad conference looks like but this certainly isn't one". He jokes that he had seen some "pretty disastrous conferences" when he worked for the Conservatives. He said David Cameron and the party are showing "strategic discipline" even if that "isn't always going to excite people as much".
1404 James Kirkup, Telegraph political editor,
offers a pretty lukewarm verdict on the PM's oration: "David Cameron has given better speeches than this one. Quite a few, in fact." He wonders: "Maybe he was tired: there were some uncharacteristic shadows under his eyes as he spoke."
emails: Having started my own business, worked hard, taken risks and now create wealth and employment, I totally agree with David Cameron. I like George Osborne's policy to make the long term unemployed work for their benefits. Hopefully, they will realise that working for a living is better than being a dogsbody for benefits.
comments: It is perfectly well and good for a company to make a profit. This is healthy for business BUT it can only be healthy if the person cleaning the toilets does not have to claim benefits just to survive when the CEO/shareholders rake it in over and above excessive greed. Rebalance the pay scales between the skivvy and the CEO and you will nurture the right sort of relationship between the two & not greed.
Education Secretary Michael Gove explains: "It is always going to be the case that there are some people for whom you need not so much a nudge as a dunt towards the workplace. It's important also that we all recognise that welfare is there explicitly to help those people through hard times, that it shouldn't become habituated." He was speaking on BBC Radio 4's World at One.
1335 Nick Robinson, Political editor
says one new policy was mooted in David Cameron's speech: the possibility of cutting benefits for anyone under the age of 25 who is not in a job, education or training. He reports: "Tory sources say that the idea is being examined by the party's policy chief Jo Johnson for inclusion in their election manifesto and by the Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood, who is reviewing provision for those aged 16 to 24."
1328 Nick Robinson, Political editor
has totted up the frequency with which David Cameron deployed certain words and phrases in his speech: "Labour was mentioned 25 times whereas the Lib Dems just twice, the Coalition once, Nick Clegg, UKIP and Nigel Farage not at all."
