Philippe Rushton , my amazing time with him in his hayday,our hayday,before his entanglement in things which became political.A marvellous father ,mentor,intellectual,adventurer.We travelled we studied I believe it was one of the happy caarefree times of his life before he was beset with publicity and he lived a quiet academic life in the heart of leafy London.He was at university studying psychology I was studying law I am so sad that he died at such an early age.
