Ten things I have done that you may not have:

  1. Won a postal game of Rather Silly Diplomacy version 2.5, unless knows different – I was playing the Mastermind
  2. Administered a book prize which was won by my father posthumously
  3. Explored a ruined observatory in the west of Ireland and found some pages from the first edition of the works of Tycho Brahe
  4. Rediscovered (I think) the birth date of Eleanor of Aquitaine
  5. Set up a website for a political party, the first such website in Northern Ireland
  6. Stood for election to public office for two different parties in elections using two different electoral systems
  7. Telephoned a cabinet minister’s direct line from a pay-phone in Heathrow airport
  8. Done a hand-delivered mailshot to all 626 Members of the European Parliament, a couple of times with reports we’d produced in CEPS and also with educational literature for the anti-spam campaign of three years ago
  9. Appeared on “Questions and Answers” on CNN, and told the interviewer that he should have read our report before asking me about it
  10. Driven from Belfast, Northern Ireland, to Banja Luka, Bosnia, with a three-month-old baby
