If you have never read...

...anything by the great journalist T.E.Utley, you are missing out. Get started here to find out about the man. Recently I went to the presentation of the 2008 Utley Memorial Awards, organised by members of this talented family, an utterly enjoyable evening.

Because much political chatter in today's London is dominated by the noisier bits of the 1990s-Left, it's hugely enlivening to spend time in the wider company of people with large minds and lots of humour and a sense of history and a sense of proportion...and a sense of pushing open wider and wider the door that leads to rooms of ideas just a bit fresher and less claustropobic than those we have had to endure this past decade.
