Anglo-Moskva Book Review
On the Saturday of the May Day holidays, a select group of political enthusiasts gathered in a conference room on the 29th floor of the Swissotel at Krasni Holmi, to hear the editor of London’s GQ magazine, Dylan Jones, answer questions posed by Times columnist, Hugo Rifkind, on the subject of Jones’s recent book about the leader of the Conservative Party in Britain, David Cameron MP. The book, which was published late last year, takes the form of conversations with Cameron, so it was natural that Jones was happy to engage in conversation with Rifkind, who is, incidentally, the son of Malcolm Rifkind MP, the Conservative politician who was both Foreign Secretary and Defence Secretary in the 1990s under Prime Minster John Major. Jones gave an interesting and personally nuanced portrait of the man who most political commentators are certain will be Prime Minister of Great Britain after next summer’s general election. The event was part of the AngloMoskva weekend, which brought English culture to Moscow.
