    Hmmm, tempted to travel down for this (I quite like Fisk's writing)

    I suppose it's not a ticketed affair?

    I suppose the hardline Israeli lobby (if there is one in Ireland) will be protesting outside[1]





    [1] this is meant as a slightly anti-hardline Israeli comment. It's not anti-semitic, it's not anti-Jewish. Pooh with knobs on to anyone who says it's the same thing

    It's a pity I didn't hear about this earlier, I'd loved to have gone, out of curiousity more than anything else. For future reference though, is this type of lecture open to all?

    [ Oops, I just noticed it's on Friday. Not to worry, the question still needs to be answered. ]

    Heh, Dave's got a stalker.

    I wasn't able to go, so was he any good?

    Generally its open to all, but if not Adam it can be arranged that you'll be able to get in.

    Gah, wish I'd gone. Anyway...

    The main point of the lecture was how the media are increasingly becoming servants of governments in so much as they ask Who and What but not Why?

    There's a bit about this in an article I posted in Politics...
