Thursday Speaker: David Atherton

david-athertonDavid is chairman of Freedom 2 Choose a “lifestyle freedom association” who campaigns for less government interference in our lives. He is known to some as “the smoking bloke” although Tobacco Tactics – a website that describes the hideous machinations of Big Tobacco – has almost nothing substantive, and nothing at all negative – to say about it. It does say that David has done a decent job of getting an audience for Freedom2Choose in the places of power on the centre right.

Like many libertarians David works in the IT industry, in this case as a recruitment consultant. He spent 15 years with People in Computers. If you are a business analyst or work in Business Intelligence then he might be a person of use to you.

He has written as for Trending Central, The Commentator and Breitbart and appeared on BBC TV, BBC Radio, CNN, TalkSport, Radio Manchester, BBC Ulster and ITV as a representative of the grassroots lifestyle freedom movement.

David believes that 8 years after the smoking ban we are all smokers now. He’ll be giving a talk explaining why on Thursday in Covent Garden.
