Charles Kennedy - goodbye to a principled politician

Charles Kennedy
Former Liberal Democratic Party Leader Charles Kennedy has died at the age of 55 and he like Robin Cook will be remembered as two principled men who stood against the illegal invasion of Iraq, invasion that has led to chaos that now engulfs Africa, the Middle East and Asia Minor.

Charles Kennedy was also a vocal opponent against the Coalition formed by Conservatives and Liberal Democrats that was one of the fundamental reasons that led to his party's dramatic defeat in the 2015 General Election.

It has been said that one of the fundamental reasons for his premature death was the fact that he entered Parliament too early, that the political struggle took the best of him and that the stress proved to be too much for him.
Losses in his private life and in his political life are reported to have been a fatal combination. The loss of his father on the run up to the General Election and the subsequent loss of his Parliamentary seat were too much to bear.
