Libertarian Alliance Conference Recordings from 2003

Sean Gabb 

I have just processed an uploaded an audio file record of the 2003 Libertarian Alliance Conference in London. The star turn of this conference was, beyond any doubt, Bill Thompson. His expose of the paedophilia scare was masterly then and still grips now. But the other speeches also were excellent.

To hear the speeches, go here:

The speeches were:
