Clay Feet

One of the most depressing ways to spend a day is to reveal the clay feet on one of your minor heroes. So I was rather depressed to read that Percy Craddock, cold water pourer in chief over Chris Patten's insane democratic reforms in Hong Kong, was in fact not a brilliantly cynical diplomat but rather one who followed the Foreign Office line on all important issues from Europe to NATO.

There's a lot of other good stuff on Electric Review.
