Yet ultimately it was his deep knowledge of Britain's military capacities, both its strengths and weaknesses, that informed the strategies which proved decisive in the war.

Like Pussy Riot, the Novorossiysk "twerk three" were charged with "hooliganism". But for what? Prosecutors apparently argued their twerk video was disrespectful to the memory of those who fought in the Second World War because it was filmed in front of the local war memorial... Like the Pussy Riot church video maybe not to everyone's taste, but a jailable offence?

There is much we can do together to make our vision of Europe a reality and I believe this is the legacy of 135 years of bilateral diplomatic relations.
