Following on from Lord Marland’s resignation, the Tories have been re-jigging their team in the Lords. With Viscount Leckie stepping up to the BIS role, Lord Popat of Harrow has been made a government whip. Dolar Popat, the multi-millionaire founder of the TLC hospitality group, has come a long way from his days waiting in Wimpy. Especially in the last couple of years. He entered the Lords two years ago and has now made it into government. Nothing to do with the £287,459.91 the Electoral Commission shows him donating to the Tories since Cameron took over.
