Aldeburgh (1)

I’ve come to Aldeburgh for a talk this morning about museums. I managed to get here in time for a conversation between Frank Gardner, the BBC’s Defence Correspondent, and Alex Younger, the former ‘Chief’. We are not allowed to say anything about what was said, except I hope I am allowed to say that both of them were extraordinarily impressive, widely and deeply well informed and whatever the mess we may have made in withdrawing precipitately from Afghanistan, it is somewhat reassuring that there are still people close to government who are able to talk about international strategic objectives on the global stage in a way which is convincing. Or it was to me.
