Charles Kennedy MP is the former leader of the Liberal Democrats.

The following is an excerpt from a question-and-answer session in which members of the public questioned Kennedy, published in The Independent (UK):

Q: Is there life for you beyond politics? What are your plans for the future?
A: I'm relieved to say that there has always been, since I was first elected aged 23 back in 1983, life for me beyond politics. I subscribe to Denis Healey's view that politicians need a hinterland, and I'm fortunate to have several. Since ceasing to be leader I've rejoined The House Magazine (Westminster's weekly publication) as an associate editor. I've also been visiting Russia through the Westminster Foundation for Democracy, offering Lib Dem ideas to opposition parties there.[1]
