More later today about Condi's failed ballet and Maliki's confessional to Bush. But in the interim, we give you this entertainment:

Douglas Murray, author of the just-published book “Neo-Conservatism: Why We Need It” (Encounter Books) will debunk the myth that a European is either a liberal or a paleo-conservative. The term “neo-conservatism” is usually viewed as an American construct, but Murray will explain how it crosses the pond quite successfully. Drawing on his book, Murray will argue why America and Europe need a neo-conservative foundation for their respective foreign policies, discussing issues such as the historical rise of neo-conservatism and the centrality of the Iraq war to the 21st century.
Douglas Murray is also the author of Bosie: A Biography of Lord Alfred Douglas, a bestselling biography published while Murray was still an undergraduate at Oxford. Murray appears regularly on BBC and lectures throughout Europe and the United States on the War on Terror, Islam and Europe, interventionism and the ongoing culture wars.
