It was chaos. There were a lot of Jews about, and so of course it was chaos. We were inside 10 Downing Street - which is often chaotic but they keep it hidden in the side rooms and at the back, up the stairs.
On the surface, things are calm - "No, no, after you, Monsieur le President". This was chaos in the state rooms, at a public reception.
It was the annual Number 10 Chanucah party and every single guest was trying to sing the blessings using a different tune.
