Farewell, Ed: Peter Rhodes on a great broadcaster, a presidential gaffe and the question for the next EU Referendum
SO farewell, Ed Doolan, the veteran BBC broadcaster who died this week. Always good listening, always wise company, Doolan believed there was less evil in the world than some people seemed to think, and that when life seems to conspire against us, it's probably just a cock-up. As he told me nearly 20 years ago: "Never put down to malice anything you can put down to stupidity. It’s usually something that’s gone wrong or some jobsworth throwing his weight around on a bad morning."
