Ive recently discovered that my friend Sean Hanley has a blog. It’s well worth a read if you are interested in East European politics. He has a book coming out soon but I cant recommend it yet because I am still waiting to be sent a review copy (hint, hint).
I note he says this about Paddy. Whether it is an accurate assessment, I couldnt possibly comment… 🙂
“There’s a slightly know-all, even sanctimonious edge to Ashdown, but on he’s articulate, to the point and clearly a high calibre politician who knows what he’s talking about. Best Foreign or Defence Secretary we never had.”
