Oooooh Oscar, you are such a cynic…just like me! I was no supporter of Blair (I am too left wing for that!). Unlike the current Pres, Obama can at least read, and appears to have read the Geneva Convention..
I like Catherine Whitehorn’s quote on politicians:
“It’s a pity, as my husband says, that more politicians are not bastards by birth instead of vocation.”
In Private Eye it says the reason for the delay in giving Blur his medal (he was awarded it in 2003) was that he wanted to design it himself and it was thought tooooo tacky. As for Kissinger- his Nobel brought about the untimely end of Tom Lehrer’s career!
Apologies maestro…! I have been verrrrrry busy elsewhere (in the so called real world!). Check The Spectator on Friday to see…more posts are on their way! Hope you are not neglecting to draw every moment!
