It’s pretty generally known that I’ve long admired John Major – whether you agree with his politics or not, he has personal qualities as an “ordinary” bloke that you have to admire, exemplified by his dignified manner in the face of general election defeat in 1997 when he pretty much said “stuff this, I’m off to watch the cricket”.

Mind you, I’m not so sure that Lady Archer should be regarded as much of an arbiter of taste. Look at the plank that she married!
