Jeremy Corbyn's speech at the end of the Labour conference will conclude a week in Brighton which has demonstrated that for now at least the party is united on his terms. Those in Welsh Labour who before the election thought their best plan was to avoid associating with the UK leader as far as possible are now much keener to get close to him.
They might not yet know what he's going to say but are looking forward to hearing him speak. They've already been encouraged by support for the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon from Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell and Shadow Business Secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey. Meanwhile Jeremy Corbyn has contributed to a Welsh Labour party political broadcast, with a message highlighting several issues close to Welsh Labour's heart.
As well as squarely blaming the Westminster government for Cardiff Bay's inability to increase Welsh public sector pay, Mr Corbyn goes on to praise the Labour government under Carwyn Jones for showing that there is a "better way" than what Theresa May has to offer. It's all a long way from when the two men seemed to be fighting two separate election campaigns.
