2. I went to school with the Lord Chancellor. I would hasten to add that he is two years older than me and I do not know him.

3. I used to do a range of martial arts : Kendo / Karate

4. I am a frustrated surgeon. I wanted to be a Surgeon as a child – but, given the amount of Rioja and other red wine which I enjoy it is probably just as well that I did not pursue that line of work.

5. I only sleep for 4 hours a night

who has tried to sweep the facts under the rug.

Both sides have unleashed a storm of protest in the ongoing battle
for the reins of government. But defenders are few and far between
for the disgraced and dishonored President, who aides say is
nervous and distraught.
