Conferences 2007: Virtual Reality
Jenny Scott takes the complicated and renders it simple

Jenny Scott and some robot judges
It's all part of the service.

Regular viewers will have got used to Jenny's ability to bring you the facts and figures and make them simple, with the help of some three-dimensional trickery.

Last year, it was giant ice creams; this year, we've sent Jenny to a virtual reality lido populated by some robot divers - click on the video links, and all will become clear!

If there are any other political issues you'd like to see getting the Daily Politics treatment, or any comments you'd like to leave, please use the form below.

THE PRESSURE IS ON
Conservatives, Day Three

David Cameron

In advance of David Cameron's speech to conference, Jenny and her supporting cast of aqua-bot acrobats explain what's at stake.

A year ago, Mr Cameron could do no wrong as far as Tory activists were concerned; it's this year's leaders speech that's daunting and crucial.

Following the controversy over grammar schools, the Ealing Southall by-election and the mutterings of rebellion from within the party, there's pressure on the Tory leader to show that he can silence his critics and win votes - and not just in the South.

CONSERVATIVES IN THE POLLS
Conservatives, Day One

Conservatives in the polls

This time last year, David Cameron had got the Conservatives off to a cracking start, polling at 38%, well ahead of the other parties.

Things got better - but only for a while, with the party dropping back to 33% by this summer.

Jenny also looks at the recent changes in Mr Cameron's personal approval rating, both among Conservative party members and in the electorate as a whole.

LABOUR IN THE POLLS
Labour, Day Three

Gordon Brown

Jenny takes a look at Labour's performance in the polls.

The atmosphere couldn't be more different to this time last year, when the conference was saying goodbye to Mr Blair as they saw themselves flailing badly in the polls.

Things have improved under Mr Brown, with the new leader seeing an improved approval rating, even among Conservatives.

In our natational metaphor, you can see everything from the marks of the judges through the extra burden of Iraq to the circling and feral media sharks.

HIS FIRST TIME ON THE MONDAY AFTERNOON
Labour, Day One

Gordon Brown

Jenny is back in her virtual reality lido, joined by a Ming-bot - an android Sir Menzies who will help explain the challenges facing his flesh-and-blood counterpart.

Activists will be hoping for a bravura performance to end both the party conference and those rumblings over his leadership.

We ask whether Sir Menzies will deal with the prospect of coalition after the next election and how he can portray his party as different from Labour and the Conservatives.

MING'S MISSION
Lib Dems, Day Four

Mingbot

Jenny is back in her virtual reality lido, joined by a Ming-bot - an android Sir Menzies who will help explain the challenges facing his flesh-and-blood counterpart.

Activists will be hoping for a bravura performance to end both the party conference and those rumblings over his leadership.

We ask whether Sir Menzies will deal with the prospect of coalition after the next election and how he can portray his party as different from Labour and the Conservatives.

LIB DEMS IN THE POLLS
Lib Dems, Day Two

Jenny Scott

Jenny's joined by virtual reality divers and judges to look at the Lib Dems' performance in the polls since Charles Kennedy ceded the leadership to Menzies Campbell.

She examines how the party is doing in the race for Number Ten, and Sir Menzies' declining personal approval rating among the public and the confidence shown in him by his own party.
