    Too true. I think it’s a general vice of modern politicians to want to intervene 24/7, and our domestic politicians are just as bad. In the past they might have been content, like Baldwin, to breeze down to the South of France for a month or two, or go grouse-shooting like Harold Macmillan (or, if wet, re-read Jane Austen or Trollope), Nowadays the hysterical commentariat would have apoplexy if they were not visibly available – look at the way they treated David Cameron when he delayed returning from holiday last summer for because of some crisis which I have already forgotten. But at least we can give our politicians a kicking at election time, while the Eurocrats sail serenely on.
