Kongestion Kamp Ken's Killer Komrades

By popular blog-vote, KKK is the new name for the Jew-baiting Mayor of London, previously known as Red Ken. Gandalf's nuanced suggestion ("Barbie" after Klaus of that name) came a creditable second.

I reflected on KKK's affinity for killers while touring the newly-opened Churchill Museum in London. There was a little section on Louis Mountbatten, who in WW2 fought the Germans and Japanese with bravery and skill and then oversaw the independence of India. At age 79 the IRA murdered him, his 2 grandsons and 2 others while they were fishing off Southern Ireland. He lived a few hours with his legs almost completely severed. An easy kill, he would not have bodyguards.

Three years later, KKK invited the IRA leadership to London to express his support for their "struggle". When the Brit government denied the killers entry, he paid them a special visit in Ireland.
