TakingStock - Conspiracy theorists fired up

Trouble at the Founding Societies dinner last week. No sooner had the 200 great and good sat down for dinner in the gilded surroundings of Liverpool town hall, than the fire bell rang.

With the fire brigade called, everyone, including centenary award winner John Anderson, above, was evacuated – the more enterprising bringing bottles of wine and, in one case, a starter outside with them.

While the more rational blamed a rogue smoker in the toilets (it is, after all, a no smoking building) a kitchen accident or a return of the students who set off the fire bell that blighted the Nottingham society’s dinner, conspiracy theorists went into overdrive. Reports the institute’s current nemesis Don Heady was in Liverpool could not be confirmed as TS went to press.
