As it turned out, however, this wasn't the Mike Katz, of Hampstead & Kilburn Labour Party but an American economics expert of the same name. Yet another fellow by the name of Mike Katz was a former Mr America and Mr Universe, so presumably there's no connection there, either - though according to the girls in our office, a few of our councillors could benefit from pumping some iron in their spare time.
