The reasons go beyond history, architecture and the fact that I have just spent 5 years of my life there. The biggest reason is that even if the masses disagree with your viewpoint, Cambridge will give you an opportunity to say your piece, and then face a grilling from some of the toughest people you will ever face in your speaking life. So next week’s schedule at the Cambridge Union:
Colonel Gaddafi on Monday, 22nd October
James Watson on Tuesday, 23rd October
Debate: This House has No Confidence in HM Government on Thursday, 25th October
And that is a hurray for freedom of mind.
