The Free Society ... on Today's radar

A breakthrough of sorts, I suppose.

Yesterday I was contacted by a producer on the Today programme. I've been on the programme a few times and I assumed that they wanted to talk about World No Smoking Day (May 31).

But no. They wanted to contact Simon Hills, associate editor of The Times Magazine. Simon is a regular contributor to The Free Society and he recently wrote a piece entitled What's wrong with being posh?.

The article had caught their eye and they wanted him to take part in a discussion about "posh" people. (Well, it is a bank holiday.)

Eventually they plumped for someone – the Telegraph's James Delingpole – who could go into the studio. Nevertheless, as Simon commented later, "It's good that they're reading the website".
