No. 44: Dominic Lawson
A reader from the West Midlands writes:
"He of course the son of a serving life peer, the former Chancellor, Lord Lawson. But he has a wealth of experience of his own - primarily as an opinion former in the media - which would make him an ideal candidate for the Lords.
"He was editor of the Spectator for five years in the early 1990s and went on to edit the Sunday Telegraph between 1995 and 2005. Today his byline continues to appear in a number of publications.
"He is one of the foremost centre-right journalists of his generation and, despite not following his father into the House of Commons, it should be hoped that a man of his undoubted intellect and strong Conservative convictions could be put to good use in the Upper House."
