I stayed with Frank and Lyndy Sobey over the weekend. We have been close friends for forty years since we were students at St.Luke's College, Exeter. Indeed, Frank was one of my two vice-presidents when I was President of the Students' Union! We went to an NUS Conference at Margate when a young Jack Straw was our President.
Yesterday afternoon, as the weather was so wonderful, we went up to Dartmoor where amongst the isolation, we took in Dartmoor Prison - it would be hard to find a more desolate place..........I hope it is closed soon.
