On Thursday 16 October, the Fine Bunch return with the first Salon of the autumn season, asking ‘Should we be protected from ourselves?’

Life is full of risks but where do we draw the line between what's acceptable and what isn't? If we want to eat, drink or smoke ourselves to death, is it our decision or should the government have a say? Where does the role of the state end, and personal responsibility begin? And which risks are worth taking?

The Salon is an open event for anyone who is interested in a lively discussion, whether you’re think that we should be taking more risks or exercising more caution. This promises to be one of our most provocative debates yet, so please come along and hear what the speakers have to say, and join in with your own thoughts.


Angus Kennedy, technology consultant and freelance writer, says "it seems that every new risk that is identified, no matter how minor, has to be responded to with some new moralising campaign or draconian measure to restrict our liberties further."

Graham Carson from Drury PSM, who promote health and safety management in companies, will be taking the view that sensible risk management is a positive thing.
