RICHMOND LITERARY FESTIVAL - IS MEDIA FRIEND OR FOE
If anyone is about on 29th November I am taking part in a debate on the media in Richmond as part of the literary festival. Entitled Media - friend or foe, and with Sir Trevor McDonald OBE and Matthew Syed, we will be debating if the media is a force for good or ill. 7.30 pm at Clarendon Hall, I think it will be fun mainly because as a travel writer I tend to write the positives but always be constructive (I am not one to believe in a melting pot of cultures or indeed that everyone is friendly where you go - they are not). And in some places where tourists are allegedly welcomed that is blatantly not true. Anyway please come.
