Clement Freud RIP

Farewell to a larger than life character who's been around for as long as I've been interested in politics. Perhaps my abiding memory of him isn't political though. It's of him on one of his cookery programmes telling us with a completely straight face that we must always never cut lettuce with a knife when making a salad. You'll hear it scream in protest he said. Even now, if I take a knife to lettuce I hear that wonderful voice. Rest in peace, Clement.
