Thursday evening will kick off with Christian Michel’s controversial arguments on libertarianism and the euro.
Why Britain needs the euro
Christian will be coming out in favour of the euro on a variety of grounds which he says are founded on the bedrock of libertarian thought.
I confess to being a bit nervous about moderating this one. The talk has proved so controversial that some familar faces have said they are staying away. I find that a little dissappointing, as I believed that libertarians enjoy a good debate and are willing to hear opposing opinions and duke it out on the merits. Staying away because you disagree seems antithetical to those sentiments.
Anyway, I hope you will come and join in the debate. If you do I will be making sure there are opportunities to put your opposing opinions to camera so that both sides get access to the Libertarian Home pulpit.
Pro-Liberty party announcement
I am hugely proud that the Pro Liberty Party has selected Thursday to announce itself. The monthly drinks at the Rose and Crown provided a venue for discussions about the formation of this new party and the faces involved will be familiar to you all.
If you want to find out more about the party, their announcement will follow on from, but is unrelated to, the pro-euro talk. As such, you will need to turn up for the talk ready for it to start at 8pm prompt as the door will be closed once the talk starts. There will be opportunities to catch up with the founders for a drink afterwards, and – I humbly suggest – to buy them one.
