I once talked to an American who defected to the former Soviet Union at the tail end of the 1980s. It seemed like a curious choice in retrospect. But at least there was somewhere to defect to, as the inimitable Lee Oswald did back in the day. What are the choices now?

If you find anything feasible, drop a line to my agent. I'm in the mood to relocate. My requirements: a security detail, a direct line to the American consulate, and two or three servants to peel my fruit. Perhaps Mark Thatcher would be willing to put me up at his South African hideaway. . .
