Personal Quote:

I'm not that comfortable doing polemic or being strident. It's not me. I think what I'm good at is getting to know people, and trying to build a relationship over a few weeks and trying to get to the truth. See more »

Trivia:

Went to the very prestigious public school Westminster School and was friends with Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish and future Liberal Democrats leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Several years below Clegg, Louis had the job of waking him up in the morning with a newspaper (part of an old public school tradition often called 'fagging' where younger pupils act as servants to older ones).
