some quotes for the day

Quotes from Alec Douglas-Home (1903-1995), British Prime Minister 1963-64.

“There are two problems in my life. The political ones are insoluble and the economic ones are incomprehensible.”

“Oh God, if there be cricket in heaven, let there also be rain.”

"I'm not particularly attracted by confrontations of personality. If we aren't careful we'll get a sort of 'Top of the Pops' contest. I daresay I should win it. But at any rate, I'm not very much attracted by this because you'll then get the best actor as leader of the country, and the actor will be prompted by a scriptwriter. I'd rather have our old ways really and put our policies firmly in front of our people."
