Forget NATO: the most important summit meeting of all


The Celtic Manor will host heads of government from all of the major Western nations next year. But I’ll bet that it won’t be nearly as momentous as 2013’s key bilateral summit. A little boy has met The Big Man and placed his order, after reviewing an honour guard of elves and reindeers. Obama’s visit, great as it will be, won’t get close to this sense of occasion.

He also explained that in our house Santa gets left whisky as well as a mince pie. Santa nodded approvingly.

All in all, pure magic.

Personal views of a wordsmithing, sartorialist, horn-playing, state school Oxonian dad, rugby ref, recovering politico, and fan of vintage tailoring, Ralph Lauren style, and sharp writing.
