We first lived in Hungary in 1974 -1977 when I was sent with my wife and our new-born daughter to work at the British Embassy. Life in a Soviet satellite was depressing for us and humiliating for the Hungarians. It was clear to me that Hungary deserved much better. I remember trying to persuade a pessimistic Hungarian neighbour that Hungary would one day be a democratic, prosperous Switzerland-lookalike rather than a crushed Soviet colony. Returning as Ambassador in 1995, I found dramatic and continuing changes towards the future I had predicted. But there is still much more to do. I hope the Friends of Hungary, with all their goodwill, scientific and cultural energies and resources, can contribute directly to this process.
