The McKay Interview // WRS// Politics // Dec. 5, 2016

This week Michael Mckay takes a slightly unusual view through the eyes and experiences of a distinguished British diplomat who served in Switzerland, at different times in his long career, as the British Ambassador in Bern and Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva - Christopher Long.

Christopher Long served as British Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein from 1988 – 1992. But he also represented the UK in a long list of countries most notably in Egypt and Hungary as Ambassador and before that he served in Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and Syria.
