Diary dates

First off the big fight this Sunday. Whilst capitalism falls (OK, stumbles ), various sad leftie anoraks will be packed into the Lucas Arms to watch Sean Matgamna and Moshe Machover slug it out. I don't expect anyone to change their view point , as Dave says:

On a related note, here's four things that are frankly unlikely to be said at the said meeting:

* 'OK, we'll just have to agree to differ on that one.'
* 'Well, I have to admit that our paper got the line on [insert issue] totally wrong in [insert date].'
* 'I'm speaking as a member of the International Bolshevik Tendency. But if want to know what I really think on this one, well, personally ...'
* 'Why can't we all, y'know, just share the love?'

For those of you with nothing better to do the details are :

Sunday 12 October , The Lucas Arms, 245a Grays Inn Road, Kings Cross, starting 5.15pm.

I'll be there as its Dave's idea of showing me a good time.

Oh and apparently its going to be filmed and put on the Internet. Who knows if there is demand it may end on up DVD, the ideal pressie for the really sad, though I don't want it in my xmas(fishnet) stocking !

I still think a cage fight would settle this once and for all!

For those of you wanting a calmer debate the Left Economics Advisory Panel (LEAP) are hosting an emergency summit :

'Who Pays for the Credit Crunch?' on Monday 13th October at 7:30pm in Cm Rm 10 of the House of Commons.

Speakers include Brian Caton (POA), Jeremy Dear (NUJ), Kelvin Hopkins MP, John McDonnell MP (Chair), Mark Serwotka (PCS), Prem Sikka (Professor of Accountancy, University of Essex), Graham Turner (author of 'The Credit Crunch').

More details on the LRC website, plus links to debate and papers on the left response .Also on the LEAP website.
