Officer and gentleman

While it is common knowledge that the Oxford Union is able to pull in some really amazing speakers, one in September is unusually notable. On the 29th, at 1:30pm, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf will be speaking and taking questions.

Anyone with a Bod card can attend for free, regardless of whether you are a Union member. Since this person is the president of one of the world’s more important countries, it is probably well worth attending. Since he is the important world leader who is probably most likely to be assassinated, heavy coats and bags will not be allowed inside the hall.

Let’s hope he doesn’t get knocked off… there are lots of nukes in Pakistan, and the control system might be rough.

Sadly I’ll be at a conference on welfare rights that day. I need to make some use of my Union membership sometime though…

Ben,

I never bought a membership. At about $300 Canadian, it just didn’t seem justified.

Yesterday, Musharraf appeared on the Daily Show – a rather more astonishing, though less personal, venue than The Oxford Union.
