    But underneath that exterior there was his Jewishness even if he criticised it when he one too many..Anyway,he will be greatly missed.Only 62 yrs old..Gosh when we see ver old politicians trying to get elected in the USA .aged 70+ With nothing to offer to the world except meaningless words (in the main) One thing i regret is his abandonment of the UK.. But hey it made him happy so at least he had much to please his nature.. Who cares that he was an atheist..I liked Allang's anecdote Christopher insisting his meal to BE KOSHER..what fun...I was going to say R.I.P ..He will ,yess he will rest in Peace.
