From time to time over the years Desmond Hoyte and I met and talked. From time to time over the years we exchanged letters on various subjects.

Politics was never one of the subjects of our conversations or correspondence. I don't know, he may have frowned on my lack of relish for politics but he never showed it. It seems that he took into account and respected my lack of any desire to get involved in politics. I like to feel he may even have been relieved that in our conversations and letter writing he did not need to press home any political points.
