Jim Callaghan

Heard yesterday evening, by the way, that Jim Callaghan had died. He was in his nineties, and apparently his wife of 67 years, Audrey, had died just eleven days earlier. I don't remember Callaghan as a politician, but history shows him to be an honorable man who tried to work in the interests of the country.

Slightly perverse to hear Blair's tribute to him - just a shame the guy didn't inherit any of Callaghan's values to go with it.
