Alan Kenneth Mackenzie Clark was a British Conservative MP and diarist. He served as a junior minister in Margaret Thatcher's governments at the Departments of Employment, Trade, and Defence, and became a privy counsellor in 1991. He was the author of several books of military history, including his controversial work The Donkeys, which is considered to have inspired the musical satire, Oh, What a Lovely War. Clark became known for his flamboyance, wit, and irreverence. Norman Lamont called him the most politically incorrect, outspoken, iconoclastic and reckless politician of our times. Clark was a passionate supporter of animal rights, joining activists in demonstrations at Dover against live export, and outside the House of Commons in support of Animal Liberation Front hunger-striker Barry Horne. When he died after radiation therapy for a brain tumour, his family said Clark wanted it to be stated that he had gone to join Tom and the other dogs.
