In February 2002 Max Hastings retired from his position as a ‘Fleet Street’ Editor. His is an enormously illustrious career which started in 1985, when he was offered the Editorship of a national institution – the Daily Telegraph – in a surprise move by its owners.

Max Hastings describes his complex relationship with his proprietor, Conrad Black. He offers an extraordinary perspective on the decline of John Major, the troubles of the Royal Family, the difficulties of dealing with lawyers and celebrities, statesmen and stars.

Emphasizing that policy decisions by the president and Congress depend on timely intelligence analysis, Sen. Feinstein bluntly stated, "I have doubts whether the intelligence community lived up to its obligation in this area."

In the days before his death Ebrahimi called the police to say his neighbour Lee James had barged into his home and attacked him. Police did attend but arrested Ebrahimi, 44, rather than James. Neighbours, who wrongly believed he was a paedophile, cheered as he was led away.
