What's up Charlie?

by Ted Hoffman

Recent months have seen the BBC archive pictures for Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy being updated. These new pictures show a serious man, determined, with important things on his mind.



Many of the earlier photos are very different. Here we see Charles as a silly man, with a smile, a wave and a cheeky grin.



Presuming this new demeanor is deliberate, I wonder if it will help any chances he may have in the coming elections? His popularity in British politics has previously always been based on his cheery manner and his zany plans.

We now know that his changing expressions were all down to how many pints he'd had.
