Lights out for Whitehall and Elizabeth Taylor
More meetings, but mostly external - which was just as well as there was a big powercut this morning which knocked out the whole of British Council HQ and Whitehall. Can't believe this fabulous weather: everyone's out on the streets soaking up the sunshine. Some in shorts. Nice evening down the pub in suburban Sudbury Hill with Kate, Nick & Emily, where I learned that Elizabeth Taylor has just died, aged 79. Actually, she didn't die in Sudbury HillI, let alone the pub (though she liked her drink did Liz)... probably more likely Beverly Hills. I thought she was older. It seems she was around forever without actually starring in anything.
