  1. ‘Pretty poor pupils’ suggests Douglas was short-sighted. Isn’t that endemic among politicians? My favourite fact is that it’s taken since 1946 for them to notice that the Bulge is about to demand state pensions and other retirement benefits.

  2. Akshully I quite liked Douglas. He had a ‘world view’ which seems to be are among present-day British Foreign Secs.
