Who would you like to meet, spend the day with and why? Obviously, many people will spring to mind.. Racehorse trainer Henry Cecil, David Gilmour and David Attenborough would be high on my list. But if I had the chance to spend the day with anyone, it would be BBC World Affairs Editor, John Simpson. Briefly. An immensley charismatic gentleman who has led the most interesting of lives which has involved interviewing world leaders, reporting from many warzones, being punched in the stomach by Harold Wilson and (after trying hallucinogenic drugs in a jungle) being cuddled by a six-foot goldfish that was wearing dark glasses and a straw hat. John Simpson must have an abundance of stories that would keep me entertained for many an hour. His books make for good reading too. Wikipedia LINK. Your candidate can be from past or present. So, who would you like to meet?
