Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale by Marlon Solomon

Marlon’s a Jew. This didn’t bother him much until he realised that some people he knew didn’t believe the Holocaust happened. From 9/11 to shape-shifting lizards and Holocaust denial, this is a darkly comic tale of one man’s journey through the conspiracy underworld.

The one-man show, described as “brilliant” by Prospect magazine, has been dubbed ‘Compelling, Shocking, Essential’ by British comedian, actor and writer Al Murray and ‘a devastating show. Informative, absorbing and very funny. The funniest show about anti-Semitism on the fringe. Or anywhere I suspect;’ by British actor, comedian and director David Schneider.
Join us for a comic tale on a subject which is no laughing matter

Why Inflation Matters - Pete Comley

We all know what inflation is – or do we?

Pete Comley is one of the few inflation experts in the UK who not only knows his CPIs from his RPIs, but why the subtle differences in the way they are calculated affect all our lives.

He will also make you think about what inflation really is. What exactly causes it – or sometimes more precisely who does?  Why does it exist? Who benefits from it and how?

He will also look into the historical patterns of inflation and show why the world  may soon be heading into a century of near zero levels of inflation.

Pete Comley is the author of both Inflation Matters and Inflation Tax books. He was a regular commentator on inflation on the radio.
