On 21st October 1805, not yet being alive, I did NOT manage to hold a drinks-party to celebrate Nelson’s posthumous victory over the Wicked Classes. But the British managed, on the afternoon sea outside Cadiz, to delay the early earnest attempts to forge a EuroSoviet for more than 100 years. Up to then it was the longest and most expensive war we had ever fought. Not until we were tired, broke and asleep would such a pig-in-a-poke be sold to people again.
Two days before our Alamein workshop on 23rd Oct, we will stage another, here (Sunday 21st Oct) when readers will be invited to opine about the EU and its works.
