Last night I was talking to my husband about Prof Robert Winston, the scientist and all-round nice TV guy. I was sure that he was a Lord, but wanted confirmation from Phil. For those who don’t know, a Lord is a member of the British House of Lords, part of Parliament but with fewer powers than regular politicians.
Me: “I think Robert Winston is a Lord. Does that sound right?”
Phil: “No idea”
Me: “Hmm, I wonder if there are any other Jewish Lords?”
Phil: “Lord Jesus Christ”
