    I was a great admirer of the late Tony Benn,

    the politician who famously and successfully fought for a change in the law that would allow him to give up his peerage so that he could continue to be a sitting MP in the House of Commons rather than sit as a Lord in the House of Lords. If only more politicians were like him.
