Sean on the BBC Tonight about "Cheap" Alcohol
- 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

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
