163 of you have done something to Paddy.

  • One of the only British politicians who is trained to kill - in his case by the Special Boat Squadron in the 1960s
  • School report for Games read: "A good fellow, if a bit excessively Irish at times"
  • Reportedly broke the Commons gym equipment with his aggressive training programme
  • Fan of Vivaldi, Handel, Schubert, Elgar and Fats Waller

Other social networking services are available. Karate chopping should only be done as a metaphor and real-life violence against politicians is to be abhorred.
