I'm going unless it clashes with the G8 demos or Marxism 2005 (don't laugh!)

There will probably be a few people you know but there are less and less OBs each year, and more and more current GE. :( :cry:

Is this an 'Unofficial visit' for the Retreat ??

When I spoke to The School Orifice, they said it wasn't open to O.B's !!

Yes, I was wondering about that. I haven't been to the Retreat for a few years, and wouldn't mind having a look this year......

What are you actually going to do at the G8 summit?

I'm hoping to be at Live8 on the 2nd July once they tell me how to beg, borrow or steal a ticket... :)

Plum: I think the general idea is to p1ss on their fireworks !

I just hope they don't wreck the golf-course.

Saturday 9th? Oh, I will be well on my way to NZ then, in fact, about to land...never mind!


At G8 I hope to make poverty history. singlehandedly, of course. and did anyone hear that Bush Bliar and Chirac may not go to G8 because the Olympic venues are being announced then? appalling.

That kind of makes a mockery of the G8 summit doesn't it?
