Jeremy is seen as a rising star
Somerset MP Jeremy Browne has been the star of the Liberal Democrat conference, with some tipping the Home Office minister as a future party leader, writes London Editor Graeme Demianyk in Glasgow.
The Taunton MP, pictured with Nick Clegg, has made a series of interventions on issues ranging from Muslim women being forced to wear veils and criticising internet giant Google after he was snapped by its cameras for the Street View system clutching his red case.
And following a fierce defence of East European immigrant workers last week, he criticised his department's controversial immigration poster-vans which urged foreign residents to "go home". "Sometimes it's difficult to be a Liberal Democrat minister in the Home Office," the 43-year-old told delegates to nods of approval.

Mr Browne, who recently became a father, has been "on manoeuvres" throughout five days in Glasgow, according to reports. Nick Clegg's job is safe – but implosion at the general election could create a vacancy at the top.
