bmm banner.jpg Mental health is exactly the same as physical health... defy anyone who experiences things like this to not feel the "burning injustices". as the Prime Minster says, of not treating mental and physical health the same... There was nothing 'un-manly' about what happened to this brave Royal Military Policeman that day. There was nothing un-manly in his tears, or indeed in our embrace or that of his colleagues clearly worried about his condition.

Ignore the haters - I know it can be tough when the crowd is baying as you make your way to conference today. But know this: the vast majority in this country think like I do. We are not huge political animals, and neither are we intellectual greats.

It's been an inspiring conference. And I look forward to coming back for many years to come.
