Sir Anthony Bamford, the missing peer [May. 28th, 2010|07:00 pm]

So there are lots of interesting names among the 56 new peers created today, such as Prezza, Helen Newlove and Sir Ian Blair. The names also include two major donors to the Conservative Party. But one notable name is missing. It seems, for one reason or another, Sir Anthony Bamford, another major Tory donor, has not made the cut – despite being nominated by David Cameron. Earlier reports suggested he was nailed on to get the gig.
 

Bamford, boss of JCB, has given the Tories the best part of £1m. The party confirmed he was nominated for a working peerage. So why did he not appear on the list? All peerages have to be approved by the House of Lords Appointments Committee – as Lord Ashcroft found, they can be tricky when they want to be.


So what happened? Maybe No.10 has decided to stagger the announcement of Tory donors who end up in the Lords. Sure we’ll find out in time…
