DIARY: Speakers' corner ..

If you go down to the Great Yorkshire Showground today the chances are that you may find a celebrity or two. After hosting BBC's Question Time (Event, April) with stargazing Patrick Moore, the centre hopes to welcome a few more celebs for the Yorkshire International Business Convention at the end of this month. Speakers will include former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev and, bizarrely, rogue trader Nick Leeson. Let's hope his business advice is a bit better than his work at Barings.

Another planned speaker is the former voice of F1 racing Murray Walker. Let's hope the godfather of commentating cock-ups (for which he is so well loved) can avoid any of his verbal faux pas, such as "if is a very big word

and "if is F1 spelt backwards".
