"Bogglingly unsuccessful"

Being asked to cover the Tory party conference would have been an absolutely plum assignment even before yesterday's speech by Theresa May, the very definition of an omnishambles that beautifully iced the cake. Little wonder, then, that the Guardian's ever-wonderful Marina Hyde revelled in the opportunity to tuck in.

Whether she's marvelling at MPs' redefinition of the word "revolution", comparing the party to cowboy builders, drawing parallels between May and Withnail ("We've called an election by mistake!"), branding Boris Johnson "the Tories' Raoul Moat" or describing Moggmania as "clearly a midsummer night's Downton wank from which the party should have awoken by now", her report from the frontlines is a delight from start to finish.
