    On Radio 4 today:
    Headstrong and Proud
    BBC Radio 4 FM
    Tue 5 Jul, 15:45 - 16:00 15 mins

    Michael Crick examines the small political societies that survive as discussion forums for the like-minded, and follow in the spirit of some of the foremost political theorists of the past.

    2/5. The Headstrong Club in Lewes

    Members consider the work of Thomas Paine and debate the major issues of the day.
    As a point of interest: apparently Thomas Paine didn't like being called 'Tom' and was only known as such in his lifetime by his enemies. Despite that, everyone calls him it nowadays!
    \"...an ape reft of his tail, and grown rusty at climbing, who yet feels himself to be a symbol and the frail representative of Omnipotence in a place that is not home.\" James Branch Cabell
