A silly item on this morning’s Today programme, inspired by Will Self’s claim that if you have the misfortune to be called Tim your “life chances are constrained” reminds of a curious piece of political trivia. There have been at least Tory MPs called Tim, including Loughton and Yeo in the current Parliament; the Lib Dem President is Tim Farron; but never in the century long history of the Labour Party has there been a Labour MP called Tim. What that proves, I have no idea.
