I’m still plain old Sandy, says Lord Bruce-Lockhart

Fighting Kent’s corner: Lord Bruce-Lockhart of the Weald

The first signatory to the original, secret concordat and the man behind the international non-food crops centre infamously hijacked by Imperial College is to take title Lord Bruce-Lockhart of the Weald.

Formerly plain old Sir Sandy, Lord Bruce-Lockhart has had the title conferred on him by the Lord Chancellor as one of the Government’s newly-appointed working peers. The Chairman of the Local Government Association and former leader of Kent County Council, Lord Bruce-Lockhart said ‘It is a great honour and nice to be associated with a part of Kent where I live and where the countryside and traditional villages are so wonderfully and uniquely Kentish. I will be fighting Kent’s corner in the Lords. Of course, to all my friends, colleagues and people in Kent, I hope I remain just Sandy.’
