On a recent trip to London Jack was invited to attend lectures at Chatham
House regarding “Brexit”– Britain’s exit from the European
Union. Chatham House, a/k/a The Royal Institute of International Affairs,
is an independent “Think Tank” that analyzes issues of international
importance.” The expression “Chatham House Rule” emanates
from this institution. That rule provides: “When a meeting, or part
thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the
information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s),
nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.” At a time when
our President is firing the good, the bad and the ugly as if our country
was a giant make-believe game show, Jack found the Chatham House programs
stimulating and refreshing. “It is great to be in a place where
there is rational debate based on facts. Not “alternative facts,”
said Beam.
