Reading tonight to a nice packed audience in Holt with Helen Ivory, Martin Figura and Jehane Markham - hence late back. Nice to meet Ira Lightman and wife Marie, whom I did not think to see there. Not having eaten, we had a late Indian meal in Holt ('holt' in Hungarian means 'dead', and I guess it was pretty quiet).
I read Dave Cameron has been doing a whirlwind crawl around the world's more profitable countries and going it large with Turkey. Growing economy, young work force, pally with Syria and Iran. Clearly people a third rate bankrupt power wants to be friends with.
