A few years ago now, a friend of mine was working in Europe as a correspondent for The Times. The paper announced confidently and with some pride - for he was a much admired writer - that in six months he would be taking up his new post as Washington correspondent. "Oh no he won't," I said to another friend. "They may think he's going, but they don't know him as well as I do. He hasn't the slightest intention of taking off for America." Nor did he: not least because Alan Clark had advised him that he would learn nothing of value there, based as it was on Chesterfields and Coca-Cola.
