I am always impressed by the versatility of some of my colleagues. I have previously mentioned Lord McColl, who spends his summers performing surgery on Mercy Ships off the coast of West Africa, and Lord Forsyth, who has just climbed Mount Vinson. Another peer builds and flies his own aircraft. (Single-seater ones, that is.) Lord MacGregor of Pulham Market is a member of the Magic Circle. Now Lord Henley, an Environment minister, has won first prize at the World Marmalade Awards for his homemade marmalade. The recipe will be used by professional producers. We have Earl Grey tea and the Earl of Sandwich gave us the sandwich, so we may now as well have Lord Henley marmalade.
I suspect other colleagues have a range of hidden talents.
