Contributing sentiments towards policy:

99% : In the end, I indulged my love of politics, humour and moral courage.
98% : Then I prioritised a fun evening over intellectual erudition and historic secrets.
97% : Peter Gordon, whose Sugar Club in Notting Hill was a favourite restaurant.
94% : Next is Lenny Bruce, the brilliant and subversive comedian, and finally Josephine Baker, famed as an exotic dancer but also a heroine of the French resistance and campaigner for US civil rights.
93% : She could offer a wonderful tour of the world from Paris of the 1920s through Occupied France to 1950s New York and the civil rights struggle.
89% : In reality, I would invite my father, who died 35 years ago and who I still think of many times a week.
80% : The chef is easy.
77% : As for the location, that's easy.
71% : Cicero would be fascinating but the culture shock would be too great, and he never passed the port.
69% : I got the list down to six, but halving it was very hard.
62% : To that end, I chose Lyndon B Johnson, whose political genius and monstrous behaviour in pursuit of mostly noble ends made him a must, though I worry he'd be a conversation hog and uncouth guest, who I suspect I will admire more for never meeting.
61% : It also helped that one of my six, John Maynard Keynes, had already been grabbed by Martin Wolf, whose fantasy dinner party will appear next week.
53% : The first was that they should all be relatively modern.
52% : The guests were the hardest part of this.
40% : I made two decisions.
37% : For starters, I'd let him surprise me, but it's some form of a seared tuna dish for the main, and dessert would have to be a fruit crumble -- not his speciality, but it's my party.
30% : The drinks, I'm afraid, would be non-alcoholic cocktails, though I might allow myself a good whisky at the end.
29% : Victoria Falls.
12% : But if he were there, I don't think I'd bother with the others, so maybe I'll save him for another fantasy meal.
