People: Bush has vision of the past
Friday 23 April 1993
MEANWHILE, Dan Quayle was back at home in Indiana for the first time since surrendering the vice-presidency to Mr Gore in January, saying he wanted to keep a low profile. 'I can go to the Dairy Queen, I can go to the movies,' he said of his happy new life. 'I enjoy doing everyday things.' Asked about his political future, Mr Quayle, a trustee at the conservative Hudson Institute think-tank, said there was only one job he'd be interested in pursuing. No, not curator of the George Bush Presidential Library.
PLEDGING open government and a crackdown on corruption, Felipe Gonzalez has put his money where his mouth is. The Spanish Prime Minister surprised a radio interviewer by revealing how much money he and his wife, Carmen, had in the bank: 'Between 27 and 29 million pesetas.' A multi-millionaire, yes, but in pesetas, not pounds. The sum is currently worth about pounds 150,000.
Mr Gonzalez quickly pointed out that he also owed a similar sum after taking out a loan. He was thought to be referring to a villa he and his wife are having built for the rainy day when they have to leave the Moncloa Palace.
AFTER years of accusations that he has a predilection for hard liquor that is noticeably indulged in times of crisis, Boris Yeltsin has gone on record in the newspaper Argumenty i Fakty about his drinking habits. His busy schedule, the Russian President says, allows him only an occasional tipple. 'On Sunday evenings the whole family - nine of us - come together,' he said. 'That's when I sometimes allow myself a drink of brandy, perhaps two.' And? 'After visiting a Russian steam bath, I also allow myself a bottle of beer.'
