Prime Minister - What Harold Macmillan could teach David Cameron

Martin Kettle in the Guardian has an interesting article - What Harold Macmillan could teach David Cameron.

In a 1980 private memo to Thatcher, the former PM warned against divisive politics. The coalition must take note, warns Martin Kettle.

Well worth a read to get perepective comparing different styles of PM and also the political circumstances against which they have operated.  It was Macmillan who responded to a question ‘Events, dear boy, Events’ - thus highlighting the extent to which governments tend to be hostage of circumstances not of their choosing and beyond thier control.  Peter Hennessy, academic pundit on British PMs, asked who his favourite PM was - has conceded to liking Macmillan.
