|Home Secretary and her "Great Predecessor"|
David Starkey spoke before her and made some very interesting points about Magna Carta. He said that it was a failure and disaster in 1215 but he praised William Marshall to the skies, who re-issued the Charter in 1216 as an act of great statesmanship.
There was a delightful Churchill impersonator present and I was delighted to be able to introduce Theresa to her distinguished predecessor.
There is also an interesting Churchill Museum with a number of curious memorabilia and a lot of archive footage. I enjoyed the comment by Alanbrooke that the Cabinet War Rooms had every advantage as a war HQ save one - its close proximity to Winston. It was also fascinating to see the letter offering Churchill £20,000 to write the History of the English Speaking Peoples - to be completed by April 1939.
