Del Boy remembers Brown – sort of
Sir David Jason, the actor best known as Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses, was reminiscing at the London Diarists’ Lunch today about the occasion when he was invited to Chequers. His enduring memory was how surly George Brown was, although he appreciated the tour given by Mrs Brown. George Brown – readers of a certain age will recall – was Deputy Prime Minister under Harold Wilson. But why was that old grump hosting a party in Chequers, I asked. For a moment, Sir David looked nonplussed. “No, I don’t mean him, I mean the other one – Gordon Brown. Gawd, shows what an impression he made on me!” he exclaimed.
