They're not really Lords, in the sense that they're sons of the men with the actual peerage, but still they are dubbed such in Hansard.

Clearly my penchant for irrelevant criticism is as big as Tim's... ;)

To be a little more relevant, I'd have to agree about the name thing. It's a bit tasteless.


They can be now because of a change in set up of the House of Lords in 1999 or so. So 92 members of the Lords are hereditary, and the others can then be in the House of Commons, if they are duly elected.
