Labour MP and Secretary of State for Health, Alan Johnson still finds time in his busy schedule to edit and contribute to Decent website Democratiya while denouncing the Academic/Media Complex.
Although he has been capped 18 times for Scotland, his footballing career suffered a serious setback in 2007 when he was kidnapped by Palestinian militants who held him hostage for almost four months.
He was freed after one of his captors, while surfing the internet, chanced upon examples of his eloquent, emotive prose and clips of his clinical finishing in the penalty box.
"Let it be known that Alan Johnson is a friend of the Palestinian people. Allah surely smiles upon a man who could score such a hat-trick against Rangers at Ibrox, especially during the Gascoine-Laudrup era."
