A most enjoyable trip was had by yours truly on the Thames yesterday in the company of the Adam Smith Institute. Every year, the think tank invites its members and various assorted free marketeer campaigners to have a glass of bubbly or two on a nice pleasure cruiser. Old age must be setting in as far yours truly is concerned, since the revellers seem to be getting younger. But then again, that is testimony to the cleverness of the ASI’s outreach programme to universities and colleges. It is impossible to over-stress how important this is. Anyway, thanks to the ASI for an extremely pleasant evening, blessed by superb weather and great company.
