278 of you have done something to Ken.

  • Has been smoking cigars long before the smoking ban was a twinkle in the state's eye
  • Douglas Hurd described him as "[t]he kind of politician who will cross a road in order to get into a fight"
  • Quote: "I shan't lose my paunch. I like my relaxed lifestyle. I like food. Because of my relaxed lifestyle I haven't suffered from the stress my colleagues do. I seem able to outlast them all!"
  • Fan of Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Thelonious Monk and Stephane Grappelli

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.
