This has got be a contender for "Pseud's Corner"
"this year’s Tällberg Forum which is an international meeting place for people from all walks of life who want to work for a sustainable future. (Theme this year: “How on earth can we live together?). Have a look at their blog and at the comments from guests in previous years. It’s a wonderful mixed crowd where titles and hierarchies are put aside. At Tällberg you can see royalty, like the Swedish King (or as this year the Queen of Jordan), together with a teacher from the US, a French actor and a professor from South Africa. A journalist asked me if this was not just another talk-shop? I said that sometimes talk-shops can be useful for generating new ideas, creating better understanding or allowing people to build networks. People come here because they want to make a change. They get inspiration and support, find common causes and start up projects together. Tällberg is like a waterhole in the desert where you take a pause, breathe – you leave rested, full of energy and new ideas, thinking there is actually hope for a better future".Wonderful mixed crowd! The Queen of Jordan, an EU Commissioner, a French actor, a South African Prof?
What planet do you live on you simpering tube of crimped organic drapery? Mixed, like the petit fours at Au Crocodile are mixte.

People pay you... hold on people pay you because if they didn't they would go to prison. And you have a say in my future? Tell me it isn't true Margot, tell me they don't let you into the conclave when decsions are being made. I really cannot bear the thought of such diaphonous drivel being listened to anywhere oustide of the Priory clinic.
