Manifesto Club Debate in Brussels

November 30, 2008 § Leave a comment

December 8th, I’m in Brussels, speaking at a debate organised by the Manifesto Club on the EU. Details below…



We are delighted to be co-organising a discussion – with the think-tank, Open Europe – in the centre of Brussels, three days before EU leaders meet. We will host a debate between European democrats of all political persuasions – to analyse the growth of EU technocracy, and the growing no-votes against it. At this meeting, we will also be launching two new Manifesto Club publications: EU Phrasebook: 27 Ways to say, No Doesn’t Really Mean No, by Josie Appleton; and No Means No, an analysis of the growth of EU technocracy, by Bruno Waterfield and Christopher Bickerton.

Speakers include: Declan Ganley (chairman, Libertas, Irish no-campaign); Bruno Waterfield, (Brussels correspondent, Daily Telegraph); Christopher Bickerton (department of politics and international relations, Oxford); Josie Appleton (convenor, Manifesto Club, and author of the club’s forthcoming EU Phrasebook); Gerry Feehily (writer and literary journalist, based in Paris).

France Culture

Last night I was on France Culture with Andrew Gallix of 3am Magazine. We talked about the Offbeat Generation. Then I read an extract from Fever in French. And riffed on some other things too.

We enjoyed ourselves very much.
