David on Downing Street

David takes a close look at the man behind the name Downing Street. And my goodness, look what he’s found.

It’s like turning over a stone and finding some deeply unpleasant stuff crawling around underneath it. Deeply unpleasant is understating it – it’s nasty in the extreme, what the history and biography yields up. So much so it’s at least arguable that the name should perhaps be changed. Like toppling a statue and deep sixing it.
