    Great letter in The Times (London) this weekend about former prime minister Harold 'Supermac' Macmillan (1957-63). Apparently, while a student at Oxford a college porter told Macmillan “that his tailor had arrived to collect a much overdue amount for a suit.” “Tell him that payment is not possible at the moment,” MacMillan replied. “But I am prepared to order another suit.”
