It's one of the things that linger about being an expat. Lack of shared history. At the water polo score table over the weekend, the parents were all reminiscing about songs and TV shows I have no idea about. And I'll quote some show or ad from my childhood which should be hilarious&obvious in that moment, but I hear crickets.

I was at Mum & Dad's when the news about Lord Howe broke.
I couldn't help but be irritated at how often his resignation speech was mentioned, or Healey's quote that being criticised by him was like being savaged by a dead sheep.

I was not a fan of his politics, but he was an intelligent and dedicated politician, and had a distinguished career.
It reminded me of a quote after Russell Harty died and all everyone wanted to bring up was him being slapped by Grace Jones. Something along the lines of "That's like writing about St Michael and mentioning the M&S knicker department."

What is less well known is that Howe later responded that being attacked by Healey was like “being nuzzled by an old boar.”

The Noble Lords and their wives were good friends.

That's the problem, Carruthers, too damn friendly. That's where the dirty deals are done, at social functions away from the public and press.
