Here's the blurb - (and no, I didn't write that blushworthy biography!)
"These are fascinating and changeable political times, and the Coningsby Club benefits from, and must occasionally adapt to, Harold Macmillan's oft-quoted "events, dear boy, events."
We are taking bookings up until Tuesday lunchtime for this week's dinner at St Stephen's Club (please disregard the note on the website about booking time).
Whose party is really over? With Jonathan Isaby of Conservative Home and Helen Duffett of Lib Dem Voice This Thursday 18th November 2010 7.30pm onwards, dinner 8pm
Will the coalition run its five year course? What's the inside perspective on how Conservative members (in Parliament and more broadly) are feeling as the coalition heads into turbulent times? With violent demonstrations over tuition fees occurring even as Nick Clegg stands at the dispatch box answering Prime Minister's Questions, how much longer will the Lib Dems withstand the pain of sharing collective coalition responsibility?
And, lest we forget, one Edward Miliband is now in charge of the Labour party. ....whose party is really over?
Joining us to speak and take your questions are the leading lights in blogging from both sides of the coalition.
Jonathan Isaby is co-editor of leading Tory blog Conservative Home, prior to which he was a political diarist at The Daily Telegraph, columnist for GQ magazine and senior political researcher for the BBC. He is an accomplished public speaker, though we shall have to see if we are treated to his talent for mimicry.
Helen Duffett is editor of Lib Dem Voice and the voice of Liberal Democrat opinion in the mainstream media. A former Lib Dem Parliamentary candidate, Helen is much in demand for speaking and media engagements, unsurprisingly for someone renowned for knowing everyone "from No.10 Downing Street to No.10 Acacia Avenue."
Come and join us for a lively and insightful discussion. In the confidence of the Coningsby's Super Chatham House Rules, our bloggers will be relaxed enough to share that which they dare not write...
