Happy Christmas and Party Invite
- Dear All,
Here is my best effort at a Christmas card:
Do try to have a happy one. Oh, and here's an invite from the Libertarian
Alliance to our Christmas party:
The Committee of the Libertarian Alliance requests
the pleasure of your company at:
Happy Capitalist Christmas 2009!
The Libertarian Alliance Reception for the UK's Free Market Movement
Tuesday 22 December 2009
Drinks and Canapé Reception 6.00-8.00pm
Cash Bar 8.00pm-9.30pm
National Liberal Club
One Whitehall Place
London SW1A 2HE
The dress code for this event is lounge suit or smart casual.
RSVP Dr. Helen Evans at hsevans@...
Do please bear in mind that, while admission is free to this most
glittering of events, you need to register with Helen. No ticket = no
entry - unless, that is, I have registered you already. I shall be there
with my women, and I look forward to seeing you there if you can make it.
I am pleased to inform you that Mr Blake has a novel out in paperback in
January. I will tell you more about this nearer the time. He has another
new novel coming out in June 2010. I have seen the page proofs, and it
seems to half as long as War and Peace. I assure you, however, that it is
a sensitive exploration of land reform and mass-murder in late Byzantine
Egypt. About a third of yet another novel is already finished. This will
be about the use of Greek Fire to keep the Arabs from taking
Constantinople in 678.
On Mr Blake's behalf, let me say that every libertarian and conservative
on this List should feel under an obligation to buy at leat ten copies of
each novel. You can find the details at the foot of this message. Mr
Blake, I assure you, is an artist of great diffidence and sensitivity. If
his royalty cheques fall below a certain sum, he is filled with self
doubt - and even considers looking for a job. Please buy generously.
Continuing on the same matter, is there anyone out there who knows a film
producer? Failing that, a German or a Turkish publisher would be helpful.
Here are some Christmas presents for those of who have nothing better to
do than watching videos on the Internet:
