New Parliamentarians - who's got your vote?
While we'd all* like to see an elected Upper Chamber, it is not to be for now - and so the process continues to try and at least make the House of Lords membership broadly representative of the membership of the Commons
To that end - the Daily Mail suggests 15 new Lib Dem members of the House of Lords will be named this week - and they suggest Rumi Verjee will be one.
But this turned my thoughts to who the other 14 might be. Remembering that I know absolutely nothing and have no inside information whatsoever (before the Lord Chancellor's office or whatever get on the blower), here are a few suggestions of who might make the list.
Do make your own suggestions. And add your criticisms. And do remember - it's just fun...
Gerald Vernon Jackson
So? Am I barking mad?
* yes, alright, obviously not you Lord Steel....
A C McGregor makes an excellent point here...
