Alastair Campbell New Hereditary Peer

No, not that Alastair Campbell… but Alastair Campbell, 4th Baron Colgrain and the former High Sheriff of Kent has won the House of Lords hereditary peer by-election. Lord Colgrain, a Tory, is an old Etonian who has worked for 30 years in the City in the financial executive search sector. PR guru Lord Bethell came a close second. One for the Lords diversity quota.

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
