Here is Sir Bryan back in 1996,
Sir Bryan Nicholson seems to enjoy mixing his metaphors as much as mixing it with the Eurosceptic wing of the Tory Party. Last night he was in flying form, deriding them as a flock of cuckoos transmuting into a plague of locusts. You get the general idea.
This is him yesterday,
"the balance of the argument has now shifted against the UK joining the Euro".
The BBC spoke to eight business leaders prominent in the pro-euro campaign and only Nicholson has changed his mind.
I can only ask, with Maynard Keynes,
“When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?”
