Went out with some friends for dinner last night and after the meal we spoke of who we would invite to our own dinner party, dead or alive, with a limit of 12. Thought some of you may like to post your list of guests. So here goes:
Choose your own chef, mine would be Delia Smith. Good old fashioned plain cooking.

Michael Collins the Irish revolutionary or Michael Collins the astronaut? I'm guessing the former. Your dinner party's appears to be a stag affair.

Well JR at last we agree on something, so pleased Nelson wasn't on the list, bored of idiots inviting him to dinner, M Collins ( perfect choice, wish I had your friends) M Monroe and Robert Kennedy would be ideal too, best chef, Richard Corrigan, his trifle is the best known to mankind. Have to dash, room full of teenagers telling me I am a ledg and get a life, need a translation site for this lot, wish me luck. Cheers, Peter ps As long as Judas is not invited I am happy with all guests B-)

Heston - Yes the Irish revolutionary and yes a stag affair. Not deliberately, and certainly taking nothing from the many, many female achievements over the years. However the more you try to cover the world's most monumewntal events and those that brought them about, with the inclusion of people you personally admire for whatever reason you realise you simply cannot fit everybody round the table.
I toyed with Churchill, JFK, Emily Bronte, Charles Dickens, the Toynbee family, Oscar Wilde, Neil Armstrong. The list could be endless.
Webbo - Interesting guests, and you have of course now given away your football loyalty, you're a gooner.

I also would like Oscar Wilde, but I do think he would tend to hog the conversation, so to act as a kind of brake on him I would suggest Samuel Johnson (but send Boswell out to Macdonalds for the evening).
As a stag dinner, by the end of the evening they will probably be timing each other to see who can get round the room fastest without touching the floor. Good luck to them - they will be legless anyway!
