Public lectures

Postby Russell » Mon Jul 25, 2016 7:30 pm

I'm off to hear David Irving this week. Just got the secret address...

I compiled a list of almost all the UK public lecture venues. But I rarely get around to seeing any :(

What public lecture have you/or would you like to attend?
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?

Is he a friend to Ken Livingstone? (Mr Irving, not Gray J)

Irving is no longer a holocaust denier. The talk is on the Nuremberg trials. Which I don't know much about. Will have to research.

Irving claimed to be no longer a holocaust denier before a court in Austria where he was on trial for the offence of denying the holocaust. He was convicted.

Perhaps he has genuinely changed his mind, although I see little evidence for it. He certainly keeps some interesting company. If you know little of the Nuremberg Trials there are probably better places to start.

Yes I have complied a list of all of them for the whole of the UK. But sadly have not attended many. Other than one on Bats are Manchester Uni. Was very good tho, something different.

Irving was good last night. He certainly has a vast wealth of knowledge and its great to hear new views on major issues, like why WWII started. He sees it as a Russian conflict, they were planning an invasion. However, Hitler got the shits (disintary) for 2 weeks and by the time he got off the toilet his plans had been changed. I'm not sure I buy this but I always like to hear different views and he has many.

He's also now not a Holocaust Denier but he believes Hitler didn't know the extend of the destruction of the Jews.

Do please comply with your list.

Many people think Manchester United are bats.

So Irving is no longer a denier; just thinks Hitler was a little misguided. Although getting him to march into Poland was a stroke of genius by Stalin.
