Talking about Chamberlain, here's a message to him borrowing from Leo Amery (after Oliver Cromwell), to Rowan Williams "You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go."


Amen to that. The particulars of Williams’ arguments have been picked over at great length elsewhere, so I won’t repeat them here. But having listened to the man purr and coo, he really does seem accustomed to his blathering and softly spoken delivery obscuring the implications of his own statements. And Dalrymple’s point about the Sicillian omertà is not without merit.
