Sad, I've just been listening to 'Saving the Queen" I love his use of language. Some years ago I was able to attend a dinner where he gave a speech, he was brilliant. My mum and I both loved to read his sailing books- Atlantic High was the best to my mind.

He died at his desk, isn't that fun?

We all adored him in high school. He was the last true conservative, in a time when "conservative" has come to describe all kinds of slow-witted, racist, perverted political hacks.
