Good Fortune

John Fortune died on 31st December. I probably first saw him as Major Saunders in Yes Minister in 1982: he and his partner John Bird doing their unscripted – but terribly well-researched – double-talk were always the best part of Bremmer, Bird, and Fortune.

Rory Bremmer said:

John Fortune “had the most beautiful brain of any man I’ve ever known”.


Bird and Fortune on government policy on asylum and immigration:

He even once or twice made John Bird laugh:

John Bird:

“Not only was he a very funny person, he made me funny.”
