Latest post of the previous page:

well, that's a matter of opinion!

Anyway, its a condition of the invite that they are dead so I was hoping to speed up its arrival (her death), as I good do with a good celebratory party!

Two politicians with convictions, or should that be conviction politicians? :halo:

Ok, I appreciate he was doing it (I hope) to get at Cameron, but it is still the one of the worst photos of a "labour" politician ever.

The only thing that makes sense of it is Pete Townshend's "meet the new boss, same as the old boss".

Back to the topic: It's taken me a long time to decide but I've finally settled on Bill Maher, Paul Merton and Rufus Sewell. And since photos have been introduced into this thread...

Whoops. Had no internet for a while and was then busy and forgot about this thread, and now I can't remember who I wanted, so have probably got some different people. But:

Douglas Adams
Shami Chakrabati
Stephen Fry

Hiro from Heros (only if he could teach me how to teleport)
Luce from Imagine me and You
Can't think of a third one, maybe some kind of female detective but I can't think of a particular favourite, maybe Carol Jordan from The Wire in the Blood (book, not TV series)

You've probably expired by now, Malcolm, but I've at last come up with a trio to invite to dinner, on condition that it does not preclude me from hosting another dinner. :grin:

Clive Anderson

Bertrand Russell

Tony Benn

I like to think I might hold on to the thread of the conversation by my fingertips :grin:

Sherry anyone?
