I've just been re-reading George MacDonald Fraser's book ''Quartered safe out here'' and it occured to me that taken in conjunction with the 'Flashman' books and the couple of times I've been to his talks could he not be a Scots PM that we could admire and follow?

He probably would be as he served in Burma with the Carlisle mob - what was it then? King's Border Regt?

Anyway, he saw life from both sides of the border and although the McAuslan books were about the Gordons, "Quartered safe out here" was about the Regiment he went to war with.

All in all - yes, a well balanced individual.
