On Thursday there was a joint meeting of the Southampton University Libertarian Society and the Hampshire branch of LPUK; the overlap of which turned out to be considerable. There was much drinking, and some delicious cheese and bacon burgers, and lots of arguing about education policy, foreign policy and monetary policy.

Strategies were discussed for promoting Liberalism in Hampshire and at Southampton University. It was estimated that 25 signatories could be found — enough to start the society with SUSU affiliation. Some ideas for events were discussed, including “How to Have Fun and Not Die,” a smoking-marquee, and lectures on the Philosophy of Liberty; the LGBT Society, the Conservative Society and the Feminist Society were suggested as potential co-hosts for events.

Jonathan has forwarded the draft constitution to the Societies Officer at SUSU, and we’re down to attend the SDC meeting on the 19th for entry into the three-meetings rule.

I take it “How to have fun and not die” is the Eddie Einbinder lecture? I myself am trying to get him a stop at my uni, albeit for the SSDP rather than a libertarian organization.

Yeah, it was actually after our chat that I explored the author more, and suggested having a related event.
