Wish I were in London

The roster built up for debates by this lot is impressive in the extreme.

Just go and take a look at the debates themselves and the speakers on offer. My personal favourirtes are

The best way we can help Africa is to leave it alone

Speakers include: Richard Dowden, Matthew Parris, Anthony Sampson and The Rt Hon Clare Short MP.

The British Empire was a force for good

Speakers include: Lawrence James, Professor Niall Ferguson, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Dr Richard Drayton. The debate will be chaired by Richard Lindley.


World affairs are too important to be decided by the UN

Speakers include: The Rt Hon Lord Lamont, Devon Cross, George Monbiot, Bob Marshall-Andrews QC, Professor Sir Adam Roberts and Professor Oliver Ramsbotham.

What fun for one and all and for the princely sum of £20 a pop
