William Hague
He's the shadow Foreign Secretary for the British Conservative Party, and he's quickly jumped high on the list of my favorite people:

During a discussion of the 200th anniversary re-enactment of the Battle of Trafalgar, Mr. Hague noted accurately that to avoid offense the combatants would only be identified as a "red" fleet and a "blue" fleet. "Just a little tip if you want to put a bet on it," he told an amused studio audience. "The cheese-eating surrender monkeys are in red this time."

Mr. Hague then went after the Germans, noticing a recent poll in which German holidaymakers said they had a difficult time relaxing. "I'm not so sure that's true," he said. "If anyone's got a history of making themselves feel at home in other people's countries, it's the Germans."

One recent column noted France's increased birth rate and commented: "Maybe drinking lots of wine and being totally unreasonable is good for your sex life after all."
This is all I know about him, but it's a good start.
