JDB to address the Henry Jackson Society in Cambridge tonight

I am delighted to announce that I will be addressing the Henry Jackson Society members at Cambridge University this evening.

I am honoured to have been invited by Jonathan Bronitsky and Brendan Simms to discuss U.S. politics with such an august group of people.

My talk, entitled, Process, Primaries and the Presidency, will address the events so far and consider the candidacies of Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum, as well as Newt Gingrich. I will assess the Republican chances for success in November and the likelihood of Obama’s re-election. It is likely that foreign policy will be addressed so discussions of the forthcoming meeting between Obama and Netanyahu and the state of U.S-Israeli relations may be tabled.

The event is at 5.30 this evening at Pembroke College.

JDB and the Bow Group

As some eagle-eyed visitors to my LinkedIn site have already noted, I am delighted to announce my appointment with immediate effect, as Liaison Officer at the prestigious Bow Group. As the oldest – and one of the most influential – centre-right Think-Tanks in Britain, the Bow Group exists to develop policy, publish research and stimulate debate. As Liaison Officer I will be working to enhance and expand the reach of the organisation both domestically and internationally in academia, business and the wider think tank arena.

This is a major development in my efforts to make research relevent and will allow me to further develop the skill sets that I have been developing in the last fifteen years.

Update!

I thought it was all over for the night, but I was wrong! I will be on the BBC News Channel this evening just after 20.00 London time to discuss the Santorum Sweep.

I will also be on the Voice of Russia on Friday and chairing a session at the American embassy on Friday afternoon featuring Congressmen Rick Boucher (D-VA) and Mike Oxley (R-OH).

JDB on ITalkFM tonight

January is becoming a busy month! After several appearances on Sky News and the BBC, I’m returning to the airwaves this evening with the irrepressible Richie Allen on ITalkFM.

We’ll be discussing the State of the Union address from last night, which could, don’t forget, be Obama’s last…… No, I don’t think it will either, but you never know!

ITalk FM can be accessed on-line and I encourage you to listen live if you can: http://www.italkfm.com/
