My grandchildren.

Death of someone I love, personal incapacity.

What’s your favourite holiday read?

Too broad a question to answer.

Savoury every time. Not a fan of sweet things.

To watch, Rugby, to play, none. Hopeless at all sport. 

What is your favourite way to travel?

First class! Train, if that’s what you mean.

Night in.

Graham Greene’s autobiography.
