russian history lesson

Alexander Kerensky maintained a “no enemies to the left” strategy, and it didn’t work out very well for him in the end.

Okay, let’s qualify that: it didn’t work out for him politically. He spent the 1950s and 1960s teaching Russian history at Stanford University, and he’s buried in the same cemetery as Sandy Denny from Fairport Convention, also Hattie Jacques who was in Carry On Nurse; there are worse fates.
