Just thought I would take a moment to plug something that I will be doing at the end of the month at the Tory Conference in Birmingham. Sadly, due to other commitments, I will not actually be attending the main conference, however I will be attending a new feature which is a mini-conference outside the secure area called the Freedom Zone.
The Freedom Zone is the brainchild of the Freedom Assoication, inconjunction with Forest and The Free Society and is being hosted in Auston Court, a state-of-the-art 150 seater theatre. They're going to have free wifi and blogging facilities which is handy.
There are all sorts of interesting things going on during the two days incluing discussions with David Davis, a discussion on the TV license etc. Additionally, I have been invited by Simon Clark of Forest to be on a panel on Monay 29th on the subject of "Freedom and the Internet". The discussion will be chaired by Iain Dale and the others on it are Nadine Dorries and the Devil's own Kitchen, Chris Mounsey.
Hopefully it should be a good discussion especially as the mini-conference is open to all, not just people with passes. In fact, if we're really lucky, we might even get some of the online fascist/authoritarian/mental bloggers turning up and heckling. After all, the chair and Nadine are hate figures for quite a few of them (and I've upset one or two). For more details on the timetable for the events you can download them in pdf here.
