IAA business lunch

This Thursday there will be an IAA business lunch at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge. The speaker will be Peter Mead - Chairman of Omnicom Europe - and he will be discussing the topic, 'The future lies ahead - trying to make sense of the signs'.

What in God's name is that all about? Trying to make sense of the signs? What signs? Tea leaves? Astrology? And the future lies ahead? Well, of course it does. It wouldn't be fucking behind us, would it? I'm confused. I'm sure Peter Mead is a decent cove, but what on earth is he on about? Where is he coming from with this pseudo-mystical nonsense?

I have been speaking to award-winning financial psychic Keith Busby, and he said to me, 'Michael, you are being purposely obtuse. You know perfectly well what Mr Mead is talking about, or will be talking about. You like your little jokes, don't you? Pete is a seer, pure and simple, just like yourself. Why make fun of him, or deliberately misunderstand him, when he is one of the good guys? Is there something you're not telling us, Michael? Are you jealous of him because the IAA didn't approach you? I bet you would love to be speaking at this lunch, wouldn't you?'

No comment.
