The House of Lords operated for centuries on the hereditary principle. Even so, I was slightly surprised to discover that the Lords gift shop sells baby romper suits.

The hereditary principle operates in a different way in the Commons - well, it does if your name is Derek Conway. There, romper suits would be less babywear, more trainee staff uniform.

This particular suit is currently being road-tested by the future Baroness Cornock of Sully. No complaints so far.....
