The statue of Reagan that Londoners will take to their hearts - allegedly

Condoleezza Rice uncovers a 10ft statue of Ronald Reagan in the grounds of the American embassy in London to mark the 100th anniversary of the former US President's birth. William Hague told the Americans in the audience “that the people of London will take his statue to their hearts.” I don’t know what research he’s done to qualify that statement but it wasn’t round my way.

But it’s not just the UK that has to suffer the indignation of a tribute to Ronald Reagan; Budapest also joins in the 'celebration'.

Meanwhile, Prague has to suffer the humiliation of having a whole street named after him.

I guess all things considered, we got got off fairly lightly.
