You can have quadruple barreled names!

Many old-time Tories are leaving Parliament this year, including the unrepentantly first-class-loving Sir Nicholas. But there are more waiting in the wings. Last year, worried about how an impeccably pedigreed Tory candidate named Annunziata Rees-Mogg would go over with the hoi polloi, Mr. Cameron suggested that she might want to campaign under the name ?Nancy Mogg.?

She refused, although, to be fair, another candidate, the spectacularly named Richard Grosvenor Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, dutifully ?de-toffed? himself by downgrading to ?Richard Drax? on campaign posters.

What’s the bet they are most inbred, the spawn of illicit affairs & with a fair bit of German in them too? I mean who are they trying to fool? This bloke Four-Fathers-Drax is obviously a German plant and a relative of Sir Hugo Drax.

And why is it that in NZ the aristocracy deign only to run for Labour? It is impossible to imagine Lord Burns of Malborough making the grade in the modern egalitarian National Party.
