      Just to add to Dougie's comments - many thanks to those who responded to our
      question, we found it very helpful, a good example of instant democracy in
      action. In the end we decided that we'd be contravening Rule 5 for what was
      in any case a somewhat unclear objective. However we are not downcast, for
      we have a New Plan. Can we ask Party speakers to consider this - not just a
      talk in Lancaster, as Dougie put it, but something more. A talk on a subject
      deliberately aimed at a single-issue lobby, with which the speaker will be
      familiar, and for whose predicted views, criticisms and attacks the speaker
      will be prepared. The entire series carries the theme "The Next Hundred
      Years" and each meeting will be subtitled according to the night's topic.
      What we aim to do is lure the lobbies in one by one by pitching the subject
      directly at them, but at the same time force them off their own short-term
      agenda (on which they will all be experts) onto a broad historical agenda
      (the next 100 years) on which they will be all at sea and clueless. That's
      the theory, and we'd like to tie it all in with the Party Centenary too. How
      about it comrades, anyone fancy a trip next year between January and June
      2004? If so, please state:
      a) Chosen subject area
      b) Preferred month
      c) Willingness to bite heads off live chickens to annoy liberals

        Dear all esp Dan,

        I thought that this would be the case, otherwise I would have followed it up
        more fully rather than just noting the various options.

        By the way, we intend to have several layers of security on the connection,
        including Norton AntiVirus and Internet Security 2003, along with adaware
        (possibly), and a thick woolly scarf.
