Seems more like a dinner than a club tho. At least I'd think that the large number of people who attend the dinner aren't involved in the club
outside of that.
Also, isn't it likely that the rich and powerful use these things as oppurtunities to not
discuss business and policy? I mean, we have as
much information that they do as they don't in most cases.
For example, in this
thread the canadian PM proposes a leadership group, but an
informal one wherein official statements and the like aren't made. He notes that the diplomatic contacts and standing papers issued in the leadup to
other leadership conferences tends to actual burn out the participants. SO these peopel are subjected to normal limits, and might have a good time
going to some dinner like this.
Also, wouldn't something like this be something of a social event? Certainly a southern gentleman would be frowned upon for not attending a dinner
in Lee's Honour no?
