  1. richardmorrisuk when I’m finally put in charge of a major superpower I shall INSIST on taking all phone calls dressed like that. Superb.

  2. Can’t help thinking of the brilliant scene in Dr Strangelove when Peter Sellers’ US President is on the phone to the (unseen) drunk Soviet leader, trying to stop a nuclear war happening by mistake. “Hello? Hello Dimitri?….”
    I will never be able to watch that again without picturing this. Thanks a lot Mark!!
