- Lord Lawson, the former UK Chancellor, exposed what he called "myths" surrounding economic thinking.
- Journalist Stephen Kinzer called on the US and UK to ditch its present allies in the Middle East - Saudi Arabia and Israel - and look to Turkey and even Iran for support.
- Labour's former Home Secretary, Charles Clarke, further explored those seemingly intractable problems, with a series of debates drawn from the "too difficult" box.
