This evening (Tuesday 14th) Oxford Union were presenting Richard Dawkins reading from and speaking about his new book, ‘The God Delusion’ for which we bought tickets about 6 weeks ago.
Having travelled for 3 hours, driven approximately 60 miles and dodged crazy on coming traffic on Wantage back roads due to a multi-car fire which closed the A34 North we arrived at the Oxford Union. Spotting a huge queue of people trying to get in we joined the back only to be told about 10 minutes later that the venue was full and that we, along with the huge queue of people would not be able to get in. So we’re sitting in an Italian restaurant drinking beer and waiting for the signing session, which is in….frack. 15 minutes. So 60 miles, 3 hours and we’re not gonna even meet the guy…grrrrr….
