I like the guys style he talks a lot of sence that others dont have the balls to voice. He never justifies him self because he knows he is on the ball. met him a few years back and he was very personable spoke to every one of 100 ish people in my mess at the age of 82 (at the time) that isnt bad going.

Phil The Greek is a living legend and no mistake. He has used his considerable influence and position in the world to voice concerns that otherwise would not get heard. He talks straight, does not suffer fools gladly and evidently has zero time to spare for bullshit. I have not yet met the man and now that I am a civy I would say that my chances to do so have dropped somewhat. However, I have had the considerable honour of meeting HM The Queen and found her very funny and charming to talk to (even if my daughter did embarass me in front of the entire Regiment by telling HM "I'm not sure you are the queen because you don't have a crown on". HM replied "I only wear my crown when I am going to be on televison as it is very heavy my dear"...Ma'am, you made a 4 year old very happy indeed.)

Long live them both.

Met him and Her Royal Majesty here in Malta Nov 20 2007, for "glad handing" (or whatever it was called) and few words. Not for any other merit but they wanted to meet couples getting married that week of their own wedding anniversary.

He seemed to me decent enuff bloke..but dumb as box of rocks. I could deduct that within few sentences.

Got my Duke of Edinburgh Award Gold Medal from the man at St James Palace longer ago than I care to remember.
He took time to have a word with every recipient

Very proud day for my parents
Shorter than I imagined though.

Well done Sir. I'd love to met the man that is the Legend, didn't he once comment when visiting a factory and noticing a rather unkempt looking electrical unit "it looks like it's wired by Indian's" or some sort of political incorrectness, thats quality :)
