I see that David Tyler, currently Chairman of Logica CMG, is to become Chairman of Sainsburys.
In 1974, David Tyler and I stood against each other for the Presidency of the Cambridge Union. I won.
I don’t think I have seen him for 35 years. But it is good to see that the “Anti-curse of Harris” is still potent: those who cross me always do well for themselves.
I am delighted for him and what I know of his business career suggests he is an excellent choice for Sainsburys.
When I mentioned it to my wife, she said: “I always knew you made the wrong career choice.”
