UPDATE: A reader has corrected me. The "You might say that line" was not written by Michael Dobbs. It was in the screenplay. Apologies for the error.

Ian Richardson is Dead
I know I am a bit late with this but I wanted to pay tribute to the actor Ian Richardson who died earlier today. His performance as Francis Urquhart in the House of Cards trilogy is one of the most memorable in any political drama of modern times. He was a brilliant character actor and his delivery of
Michael Dobbs's memorable line "You might say that; I couldn't possibly comment", has ensured its entry into any book of political quotations.
