Attention Dublin Readers

Apart from a couple of pre-prepared items, there's not likely to be too much blogging in these parts for the next couple of days. The reason? I'm off to Trinity College, Dublin to speak at the College Historical Society's* US presidential debate on Wednesday. We shall be arguing the motion "This House Would Vote for Obama". They were having some trouble finding folk who would argue for McCain so I may be on the opposition side - in which case I shall make the case for Bob Barr, not McCain. Actually, whichever side of the motion I'm on, I shall be making a case against McCain. Just possibly against Obama too.

Anyway, Dublin-based readers are welcome to come along. At the very least we can sink a few at the Stags Head after the debate. It all kicks off at 7.30 in the GMB.

*A generous invitation since I am in fact an Honorary Member of The Other Society.
