Keep telling the truth

Dear Gabriel,

Remember ‘Nothing matters very much and most things don’t matter at all’ and in British politics at least. No-one dies and that’s the important thing. My Chamberlain remark was printed in every newspaper with the unfortunate interpretation that the present Prime Minister was Chamberlain. But “Never apologise, never resign, never complain!” The main thing is to keep telling the truth as one sees it.

In the end, the Prime Minister did the right and just said no to the new treaty. He told his truth as he saw it.
