It is the Liberal Democrat Spring Conference in York this weekend and its leader - Sheffield MP & Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg - says he is relishing a head-to-head with UKIP's Nigel Farage.
As Mr Farage's party vies to take on all parties at the forthcoming European Elections the conference is likely to focus on Europe and Tax - and the Lib Dem leader insisted there is still plenty on offer from the party to voters in our part of the world.
Claire Ashforth was there to meet him.
Legislation to pave the way for the construction of the controversial HS2 rail link - which will link Yorkshire with London - is not likely to complete its passage through Parliament before next year's general election, Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has indicated.
Failure to get the HS2 bill onto the statute book by the time of the May 2015 poll could make it a contentious election issue between the parties, particularly in constituencies along the route of the proposed line.
Questions were asked about Labour's commitment after shadow chancellor Ed Balls said there would be "no blank cheque" for HS2, though Ed Miliband has since reaffirmed his backing for the scheme.
The MP for Cleethorpes, Martin Vickers, says he wants to ensure parliament decides quickly on the future of a renewable energy project on the south bank of the Humber.
The port operator ABP is using a special commons process to object to plans for the development at North Killingholme.
It wants to develop its own deep water jetty in an area where another company, Able UK already has permission to build a marine energy park creating four thousand jobs.
Vickers says he is concerned about potential delays:

City of York Council and the York St John University Students Union will once again join forces today to give the Groves area a spring clean.
Following on from last year's spring clean, student volunteers will look to refresh and tidy up the gardens along The Groves between 10-4pm.
– Cllr David Levene, City of York Council
It is encouraging to see students taking pride in the area where they are living and studying and helping to make a Smarter York. **
"This is also a great way for the council to highlight the volunteering opportunities available to other individuals and groups who wish to get involved in their local area."**
Smarter York aims to help maintain a clean, green and safe environment for York. The initiative encourages and works with residents to create attractive neighbourhoods with a real sense of community and to tackle the things that can spoil neighbourhoods for example littering or graffiti.
Motorist Graham Auty from Leeds is taking on the system over a road camera that has netted four hundred thousands pounds in fines.
Graham's wife was driving when it snapped them in Manchester. He later successfully appealed against the fine, arguing that no warning signs were visible.
But not content with that, he is now taking his fight to Parliament to try to overturn those fines handed to thousands of other motorists. Helen Steel reports.

The Labour part have confirmed Batley MP, Mike Wood, is to stand down in the next election.
Claims have emerged that South Yorkshire is missing out on millions of pounds of European Union funding - because the cash is being diverted to Scotland instead.
The Deputy Prime Minister and Sheffield MP Nick Clegg today denied Labour claims that he's been 'asleep at the wheel' by allowing a 50 percent cut in EU money. He says funding will actually rise this year.
But his opponents say he's fiddling the figures, with cash being shifted to other regions. Our Political Correspondent Paul Brand reports on the row.
