The Duke of Rutland gets nul points

At the start of the month I reported that the Duke of Rutland was standing in a rather esoteric by-election - one to fill a vacancy for a hereditary peer to sit on the crossbenches in the Lords.

Mark Pack has the results. The Duke was one of 12 candidates not to get a single vote.

The winner was Lord Oaksey, who must be the son of the racing broadcaster.

Lord Bonkers adds: One mustn't gloat. Oh dear me no. There will be no gloating here over the fact that the Duke failed to get a single vote. No gloating at all.
