A quick history quiz for the weekend: only six recent Prime Ministers have not subsequently taken a seat in the House of Lords. Who are the six?
Four you should find quite easy, a fifth not too hard if you are an older reader, but the sixth may surprise – or make you think “oh, of course!”…
Winston Churchill, Edward Heath, John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron. Interesting that we’re now in an extended run of ex-Prime Ministers not going to the Lords.
