      Dear All,

      On the back of my earlier news release about price floors for alcohol,
      I've been booked for a debate on BBC Radio 5 Live tonight at 10pm BST
      (Friday 21st May 2010). The Presenter will be Stephen Nolan. I shall be up
      against a Professor Ian Gilmore, who is a liver specialist convinced that
      higher prices are the only path to saving us all from killing ourselves
      with drink.

      If you want to listen, Radio 5 is somewhere on the Medium Wave and on
      Freeview. Otherwise, you can go here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/5live/ If you
      want to contribute to the discussion, here are all the contact details:

      Oh, and Richard Blake's new novel, "Blood of Alexandria", will be out on
      the 10th June 2010. Published by Hodder & Stoughton, this has been
      described as "a masterpiece without blemish", and it is one of the few
      pieces of mainstream fiction published recently in this country that has
      an explicitly libertarian theme. You can read the first review of this
      remarkable work by going here: http://tinyurl.com/2u9e395 I do advise you
      to buy copies for yourself and your loved ones, to recommend it to others,
      and to review it on Amazon. Every little helps.
