The good, the great and Lembit Opik

Nick Clegg will face imprisonment rather than carry an identity card. Lembit Opik chooses a different cause over which to defy the law.

You will have read by now of Lembit's Segway ride at Westminster. His two companions, both Tory peers, are worthy of notice.

Earl Attlee is the grandson of the Labour prime minister. The Earl of Liverpool is a kinsman, but apparently not a direct descendant, of the 19th century prime minister.
