Beery Bob From Brockley Bloggers on the Piss

I had the good fortune of going for a drink in London Bridge with a number of bloggers last night. The company was very nice, the drink was in constant flow, my chair was very comfortable and I was able to get myself home in one piece at the end of the night.

The conversation went from the weird and apparent demise of the left in this country (Michael Ezra who blogs at Harry’s Place had much to say on this subject), print journalism, Jewish Heavy Metal music (which I at one point termed death klezmer), and the Centre for Social Cohesion, among many other things in between.

Francis Sedgemore, also present, has made a list of the bloggers he spoke to, so instead of racking my brains, I will copy and paste that list, just as a hello to all, and a thank you for the invitation.

Hopefully speak to you again soon.

Brought together by Bob from Brockley, those assembled included Kellie Strøm of Airforce Amazons, Michael Ezra of Harry’s Place, Jams O’Donnell, Sue Luxton, Carl of Raincoat Optimism, Max Calò, and Keith, the sociologist and Jewish death metal fanatic. Apologies to others not mentioned here, but unfortunately I didn’t get to speak with everyone.

  1. It was an excellent night… It must have been – I had a hangover that lasted until the early evening!

    It was good to meet you

    • ooo that doesn’t sound good, needless to say the work today has been rather slow here.

      Was good to meet you, and everyone, a good crowd, hopefully it won’t be too long until something similiar can happen again

    “As Herb E. Farnston put it in the August, 1975 issue of The Socialist Obscurity. Hang on, I’ve brought a clipping…”

    Thanks for coming Carl and Beatriz. It was great to meet you. I’ll be in touch about the publication brokerage thing we spoke about!

    • Thank you very much for the invite. I’ve not quite put that piece altogether yet but what I will do is send you links to two blog entries, the subjects of which I will concentrate on in the piece.

      Many thanks again, it was great finally meeting you
