Amidst all the resignations and reshuffles following the EU Referendum, some of you might not have noticed that top BBC politico Nick Robinson has been sworn in as the new head of the British Academy. And not before time. After all those hours standing in front of Downing Street, and then getting up at 3am to present the Today programme, it's about time he had a job that included civilised working conditions. And nowhere is more civilised than 10-11 Carlton House Terrace.
Any resemblance to eminent historian Prof Sir David Cannadine is, of course, entirely coincidental.
