Boring for England?

I’m reading the diaries of Chips Channon, great gossip of the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. His entry for 20 February 1936 begins:

Sir Arthur Colefax died today; he was a good man, talented, high-idealed, kind but boring beyond belief. Berners once said of him that he ‘had been offered £30,000 per annum to bore the channel tunnel’.

That’s close to £2 million in today’s money.
