It always pays to keep an ear to the ground at Hay for recommendations and word of late additions to the programme. This years the rumour mill was grinding out speculation that Julian Assange would be holding court at some point.
The rumours it turns out are true. Assange will be holding a session entitled simply ‘Wikileaks’ next Saturday 4th June at 2.30pm on the Welsh stage.
My recommendation to the organisers is that they accompany him on route. I was taking to PR guru Mark Borkowski a couple of weeks ago who knows Assange well, who said that whilst Assange could navigate every corner of the internet he wouldn’t trust him to traverse the London underground.
