As regular readers will know, there was considerable interest in the titles that were to be taken by Sir Michael Lord, a former Deputy Speaker of the Commons, and Sir Michael Bishop, former head of British Midland, when they were ennobled. We had the prospect of Lord Lord and the Lord Bishop. In the event, Sir Michael Lord was introduced as Lord Framlingham. Yesterday, the other mystery was solved. Sir Michael Bishop was introduced as Lord Glendonbrook.
Let’s hope no one is elevated to the peerage whose surname is Almighty. Or God.
