Wind beneath Digby

Bette_midler

TS is in no doubt over the business credentials of outgoing CBI head honcho and incoming Deloitte man Sir Digby Jones, but having listened to his choices on Desert Island Discs on Radio 4 over the weekend it did raise a few questions. While there are a few rousing selections, such as Jerusalem and Elgar’s Nimrod, some of his others were a bit more, shall we say, interesting.

On Digby’s castaway list were Younger than springtime from the musical South Pacific, Hello again by Neil Diamond, George Benson singing In your eyes, Tina Turner’s legendary The best, and TS’ particular favourite (Everything I do) I do it for you by Bryan Adams.

But to top the list off, Digby chose the classic weepy power ballad Wind beneath my wings by Bette Midler. Do you get the feeling that beneath that tough business exterior our Digby is just a soppy old romantic? Digby, did TS ever tell you you’re our hero?
