Diary: Sharkey joins the Lords

During the countdown to Christmas, it's good to see a few lords a leaping. Especially adland lords.

John Sharkey, the former Saatchi & Saatchi managing director, BST co-founder and chairman of the Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election campaign, has been made a Lord. Adland is quickly filling up the House of Lords at this rate as Sharkey joins Lord Puttnam, Lord Saatchi and Lord Bell. Hopefully, he can pull a few strings for adland, between naps and brandies, that is.
