Dave 'd-magnet' wenban has done the unthinkable and pulled out of an almighty drinkathon in leicester. His reason; to attend a lecture about a book (no, I am not making this up). As enlightening as the Cheltenham Literature festival may be, books and lectures have been around for centuries, and will continue to occur for many years to come. I will pay a keen student to attend on Daves behalf, ie take notes, video/audio record the highlights, draw pictures, heckle, anything, if it means he will grace us with his presence on this illustrious once-in-a-lifetime bar crawl in leicester. All I need is names, names, names!! If you feel Daves time is better spent on the piss, sign this petition!! If you don't know dave, then think of the morals of this classic tale. Bearing in mind dave has just spent 4 years in lectures at university, do you really think more lectures are suitable in this current climate If not, sign here!
