Decency – a lesson for Parliament – Major on Bush
John Major remembers his friend, George HW Bush on page 58 of today’s Times (December 5th 2018): a lesson for our present intemperate politicians.
“As a human being he was one of the most gentle, wise and deep-down decent men I have ever know. A politician, yes, but not at all costs. The dark side of politics was not for him. George Bush had an open heart and an open mind. He was always more comfortable acknowledging the virtues of opponents rather than abusing them.”
