Dinner for octogenarians
Dinner last night for the four LibDem peers who got to 80 in the last year, a terrific occasion with lots of friends and colleagues, and our Leader in the Lords, Tom McNally, as an urbane and witty master of ceremonies. The other ancients are Bill Ridgers, Dick Taverne and Geoff Tordoff. We're only a little on the wrong side of the average age of the Lords, now 69, and as I always say, 'old' is ten years older than me.
