Personal Quote:

[on Russia's occupation of Crimea] There's going to be no response of any consequence at all against Russia and that's obvious by what people are saying. When David Cameron talks about consequences, since that word is so unspecific and repeated on a daily basis, it is perfectly clear that it is meaningless. See more »

Trivia:

Although a conservative himself, Michael's father was a member of the left wing Spanish Republican governments in the 1930s, and became head of the London Diplomatic Office of the Government in Exile in 1972. See more »
