What a week - finishing with Round the Island
The Conservative Summer Party on Weds was a fascinating affair. I spoke to all the then supposed leadership contenders and, mainly to reassure my Chinese clients considering investment in the UK, got "selfies" with a number of them. David took the one on the left which is good of him and one of the worst ones of me I've ever seen!
Stephen Crabb would be an excellent successor when the time comes, and there are of course other possibilites. Boris has done the right thing to stand down as a candidate - he really couldn't have done it.
I should also mention that we went to the Dr Faustus which turned out to be a modern "adaptation" with most of the text by a contemporary playwright.
And I did my first Round the Island Race which was spectacular!
