The Thorntons

SO, Ed Miliband has called his new bub, Samuel, but did you see one of kiddio’s middle names: Thornton.

I think he should have gone for ‘Winthrop’, but no doubt a certain Lib Dem up in Kilburn will approve of the choice.

Exhibit A: Sammy M’s birth certificate

Exhibit B: Election results paper for an election in Hampstead Town ward in Camden.

    Actually, the family story is that he was shot by his own side while leading a foolhardy charge against the opposition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodore_Winthrop – which has never happened to distant relatives. Not ever.

  5. Well it’s not the first case I’ve heard of, and it’s a bit more modest than Samuel Double-Barrell (at which the Daily Mail would go crazy: “he can’t even assert himself in his own home!”)

  6. Dear Richard, did you hear about the police arresting a highly dangerous criminal at the town hall last week? Word is this crimbo was armed with a highly dangerous note book and pen, and if it wasn’t for the quick thinking of a vigilant council officer, a serious incident of national security could have occurred.
