Boris’s Resignation Honours List

As revealed by the Times last night, Boris’s resignation honours list has now been finalised.¬†And as expected, there are a few recognisable names among the 20-or-so appointments…

Nadine Dorries, Alister Jack, Nigel Adams, and Alok Sharma, are all getting peerages at the end of the Parliament to avoid by-elections. Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, Dan Rosenfield, Ben Gascoigne, and Boris’s former City Hall adviser Kulveer Ranger can expect their rewards sooner. Ross Kempsell and Charlotte Owen will become the youngest life peers in history, both under the age of 31. Congratulations in particular to m’Lord Kempsell…
