Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
Here are details of the launch of the Orwell Prize which you are all invited to attend at the Frontline CLub. The event is themed around Burma (and the link is of course Orwell's work Burmese Days written from his experience in the Burmese police) so should be very interesting. It is also well worth visiting the Frontline Club if you have never been there - and this is an opportunity to get in for free because most of their events are rather costly. However do remember to RSVP below if you are interested in attending.
