Re: Charles Kennedy

I'd have preferred him as PM than the last three tosspots, but sadly he was with the wrong party...

Re: Charles Kennedy

No, he was with the right party and he was one of our very few honest politicians.
He was certainly right over his objection to the Second Iraq War and he was certainly right in his stance over the Coalition.
A sad loss.

Re: Charles Kennedy

Since his death was announced there have been numerous tributes to Charles Kennedy. It would appear decency didn't extend to his opponents in the General Election.

There was a short, but poignant, tribute to him at the end of Have I Got News For You last night on BBC1
[quote= http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-33033956]Charles Kennedy was one of the most popular politicians to appear on the satirical quiz show Have I Got News For You.
Following his death at the age of 55 they played a tribute to him, featuring moments from his appearances on the programme

Re: Charles Kennedy

Yes, I saw that. It was a lovely tribute. There is also a montage of his appearances on Question Time which is posted on their website.
