Nearly as bad as the late lamented Lord Whitelaw who once accused an
" going around stirring up apathy ". -- as gnomic an utterance as any
politician could wish for.
Universally known as Willie Whitelaw, before _and_ after his ennoblement,
he was highly valued as a " troubleshooter " by Margaret Thatcher. whose
grasp of demotic English was so poor that she paid tribute to him by
proclaiming " every Prime Minister needs a Willie ".
