Young Donald James Kennedy didn’t take long to hit the limelight. Seventeen hours from birth to your first press conference is pretty impressive. It might also demonstrate some hoopy strategic planning on his dad’s part, although a count back suggests a romantic holiday last August.
Radio Five listeners had no end of advice for Charlie this morning (no, not that one) including the suggestion that he should give up all thoughts of premiership (no, not that one), even if the LibDems can win the general election, and spend quality time with his first-born instead.
Actually, this would not be a problem. Even in the unlikely event of LibDem victory, CK could not take his place as the political leader of his country because he’s Roman Catholic, at least assuming Talk Politics has got it right with the interpretation of the 1701 Act of Settlement.
As with Charlie’s marriage (no not that one) I think we need a definitive answer.
