Shadow Secretary of State Vernon Coaker has been having a minor skirmish during conference season with Theresa Villiers.
He called her "semi-detached" over the Haass talks. She replied that he "lacks any credibility".
Then he claimed that, unlike him, she "won't even get to address her party conference" and was being "sidelined" and "snubbed by her own party".
Thankfully for us, the conference silly season is now over.
