My great nephew is a fruitcake

David Campbell-Bannerman has been in the news today as UKIP has responded to David Cameron's attack. He was interviewed on the Today programme this morning - see the end of this article on the BBC site.

If the name sounds familiar, it is because he is the great nephew of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, the Liberal prime minister. If you do know much about Sir Henry, read Martin Kettle's tribute.

While no one would have called the great man a fruitcake, he might well have eaten one.
