Post by Adam Macqueen MA (Cantab)

The strange death of David Kelly, the Methuen-published conspiracy-fest which the constituents of Lewes funded their Lib-Dem MP to spend 17 months writing, concludes, with the help of an anonymous man in a pub in Exeter, that the weapons expert was murdered by "anti-Saddam Iraqis".

It is credited on its cover to one "Norman Baker MP".

Who is the only other member of parliament to have insisted on having his full title displayed on his dust-jacket?

Jim Hacker.

But then of course, the contents of his book were a fantasy.
