Wading in

While I’m on the Gambling Bill and the House of Lords debate on the offshore levy amendment, I have to post this rather shorter but absolutely priceless contribution, from the 81-year old Lord Wade of Chorlton.

My Lords, other Members may remember a similar discussion in this House in the early 1990s when the Duke of Devonshire said in terms – I cannot remember exactly what he said – that in his view any well brought up young man should have a mistress, a yacht and a racehorse; and that, if he could not afford any one of them, he jolly well should not have them. I am inclined to agree with him.
