A Man of the People

Former Defence Secretary, Bagpuss-faced Robertson was one of the original cabal of the New Labour project and a fully paid up, card-carrying member of the Scottish Mafia.

Robertson, who always sounded if he was talking with a mouthful of porridge, was elevated to the lofty position of NATO Head Shed in 1999 - not bad for a former union official for the GMB. Since retired, Robertson is now Lord Robertson of Port Ellen, and... get this, is a Knight of the Most Ancient & Most Noble Order of the Thistle, and a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael & St. George. There's nothing like a dyed-in-the-wool socialist, eh?
