Christopher Logue – occasionally "Homer" Logue in recognition of his remarkable versions of the Iliad – first made his mark in the late 1950s. He invented the poster-poem and recorded Red Bird, the most successful British jazz/poetry disc, wrote lyrics for the singer Annie Ross at the Establishment Club and two scripts for the director Lindsay Anderson at the Royal Court Theatre. For Private Eye he edited "True Stories", which ran almost continuously for 30 years, and "Pseuds Corner". He also wrote the script for Ken Russell's Savage Messiah and acted in two of his films (including Cardinal Richelieu in The Devils).

Tobias Ellwood, the Tory MP for Bournemouth East, is a 6ft 2in former Army captain. He is such a fan of David Cameron that, during the 2006 leadership contest, he was pushing notes under the doors of other MPs pleading for their support. When a fellow Tory, Mark Pritchard, annoyed the Government with his persistent campaigning against cruelty to circus animals, Mr Ellwood, pictured right, jocularly suggested that he should be taken behind the bike shed and given "a good hiding". Last month, he lost his position as a parliamentary aide when the Defence Secretary, Liam Fox, resigned – but the whips quickly found him another berth.
