Thank you to everyone who spoke at, helped with, and attended the Euston Manifesto Conference yesterday. Every seat was taken and then some. It was a superb meeting with some of the most interesting and thoughtful lectures I’ve heard in years—and that includes the stuff I thought was wrong. One of the best things about the manifesto phenomenon has been reading, listening to, and talking with others on the Left whom I disagree with profoundly about matters of life and death—and doing so in a healthy, comradely, and civilized atmosphere.
You’ll be able to hear one of the talks online/on the radio on Friday—and I hope download some/all of the others as MP3s.
(And of course plenty of people phoned and emailed at the last minute hoping for tickets.)
I’m going to have a lie down now.
