That was always for people who had a much more important job, Viceroy of India. dearieme November 13, 2016 at 3:38 pm Baron Bollocks. Squander Two November 13, 2016 at 3:43 pm Scourge of Brussels.

AndrewC November 13, 2016 at 5:01 pm Whatever his faults, Cameron isn’t Gordon Brown and he isn’t Ed Miliband. AndrewZ November 13, 2016 at 5:16 pm Given how his career ended, it has to be Earl y Bath. Demetrius November 13, 2016 at 5:42 pm Lord Sidcup? Bloke in Costa Rica November 13, 2016 at 5:44 pm +1 AndrewZ Clarissa November 13, 2016 at 5:45 pm The last former PM to be made an Earl was Macmillan. Since then the best any of them have managed is a life peerage (Wilson, Callaghan, Thatcher) whilst others have been knighted (Douglas-Home, Heath, Major). Lord Witney is, I suspect, the best Cameron will manage and he may even just get as far as Sir David – as and when the system gets around to bestowing him anything… which since it hasn’t yet dealt with either Blair or Brown may be some way away. Demetrius November 13, 2016 at 5:48 pm And another thing. Apparently Early of Witney is noted for soft house furnishings and luxury blankets. It is an expensive place to get your bedding requirements. Tim Worstall November 13, 2016 at 5:49 pm It’s up to him, by convention at least. He decides what he wants and he then gets it. PF November 13, 2016 at 5:55 pm Clarissa “Lord Witney is, I suspect, the best Cameron will manage” From Wiki: Lord is used as a generic term to denote members of the peerage. Five ranks of peer exist in the United Kingdom: in descending order these are duke, marquess, earl, viscount, and baron. The appellation “Lord” is used most often by barons, who are rarely addressed by their formal and legal title of “Baron” ken November 13, 2016 at 6:25 pm If he follows Maggie – a baronetcy (hereditary knighthood) and a Barony. Baron Dave of Notting Hill Mr Ecks November 13, 2016 at 6:34 pm Lord Snooty Deputy Dawg (too much responsibility jobwise there) Graf Vynda-K Duke Leto Atreides Baron Bromance ( joint title with Gideon) Duke of Puke Count Mispelled (think about it) Prince Valium ( nah High Times prob has the copyright still) Lord Treason Marquis of Lye That’s enough.

PF November 13, 2016 at 6:44 pm BiG “You are remarkably dismissive of someone who, even if by accident rather than design” You’ve just spelled it out, and still don’t get it!

Who delivered it? merv November 13, 2016 at 8:55 pm lord of the lies PF November 13, 2016 at 9:01 pm BiG “Who delivered it?” Re a referendum, Nigel Farage. He, more than anyone, forced Dave into a corner. After that Dave did everything he possibly could (intentionally) to try and ensure that Brexit wouldn’t happen. Do really still not get it? “Did you get the Brexit you want or not? ” I’ll let you know once we get it..;) Martin November 13, 2016 at 9:20 pm Bobrocket – referendums can go a different way than wanted. Like the last 3 did. Plenty of people preferred his party 18 months ago. BlokeinBerkshire November 13, 2016 at 9:31 pm uk voted conservative and got some rediculus socialist government at last election. Based on some of his party’s policies I’d have thought a title would be anathema! Andy Dan November 13, 2016 at 9:34 pm ‘Sir Right thing to do. God, how I hated him when he said that. Ted S.

Bloke in Germany November 13, 2016 at 10:33 pm @PF, I also hope it doesn’t happen, but I hope it will (if it doesn’t) “not” happen by a democratic rejection of the deal that’s eventually on the table at BrExit time. Rather than the sky-pie deal based on 350 million every nanosecond for the NHS and all the other undeliverable majick unicorns. And we can’t reject realpolitilk dumbocracy, can we? Andy November 13, 2016 at 10:45 pm Earl Cunt of Blighty PF November 13, 2016 at 11:15 pm BiG There was no sky-pie “deal” (£350m)? I’m not sure I follow you, but if you are still trying to pretend to yourself (NHS / dumbocracy) that these issues convinced all the thick and stupid people to vote Out, no offence, but you are barking? The lies were mostly on the other side, and have been for decades, that much is surely obvious? If there had been any honest debate (ie an acknowledgement that “In” meant a continued move towards a United States of Europe, etc, etc), the Leave side would have stormed it. We all know that. (Apart from one or two avowed supra-nationalists – ultra lefties who can’t stand the idea of the UK as a nation state) the people I know who voted in generally did not really think through the sense of a USE, they generally thought (but clearly hadn’t) they were voting for some sort of inoffensive status quo. dearieme November 14, 2016 at 12:23 am The Dodgy Doge. bloke in spain November 14, 2016 at 1:10 am Shame Duke of York’s already taken. DocBud November 14, 2016 at 8:15 am If the referendum result was pushed off Southend Pier, there be another one to decide left or right, then which end, then naked or with a clown suit, etc, etc. DocBud November 14, 2016 at 8:16 am Damn, “there’d”, trying to type fast before last cabin door closed. David November 14, 2016 at 9:27 am Lord Fuck of Whit Mr Ecks November 14, 2016 at 10:55 am Brexit is going to happen Biggie . And your precious EU is going to collapse And–what with you being a German now ( if memory serves you have applied to become one–which says volumes)you must know that Germany itself is going down the pan unless it wakes up and smells its own leftist stench.
