Australian politician and public orator who is described by the Australian Dictionary of Biography as a "harmless ratbag". The Macquarie Dictionary defines a ratbag as "a lively character."

Kay ran unsuccessfully for the federal seat of South Sydney for the Nationalist Party in 1917. In 1918 he left the Nationalists and started appearing regularly as an anti-Communist speaker at Sydney Domain. He also travelled regularly to Melbourne to orate next to the Yarra. In 1925, he won one of the five seats of North Shore under proportional representation in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly as an independent. In parliament, he regularly voted with Labor to the horror of his former supporters. Under the electoral system, the Labor Party automatically won his position if he resigned, so Jack Lang offered him a position on the Metropolitan Meat Board in 1926 as a consumers' representative.

He married twice and was step-father to his first wife's five children. He died in the Sydney suburb of Mosman on 4 February 1961 at age 76.
