In the second such story inside a month, Liberal Democrat politician Lembit Opik has been discovered to be a strange anagram.
Only days ago, American pop princess, Britney Spears, was found to be an anagram of Presbyterians, and now Opik, who was once married to another popstar, Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia, has been unveiled as the obscure Irish poet, Kip O'Timble.
O'Timble was at the centre of the MP expenses row last week, when it was discovered that he tried to claim the purchase of a £2,500 TV as an expense for his 'second home', but that, when this was refused by the fees office, he 'flipped' the TV to his first home, and used a less expensive £750 model for his London pad instead. The arrogant bastard.
Now, it seems, O'Timble has also 'flipped' his name.
It's unclear as to why so many well-known names are currently being unearthed as anagrams, but one reason could be that I am extremely bored.
