My Lord and Laddy
I've said before that the chilled manner in which Britain has taken civil partnerships for gays and lesbians in its stride has been an illustration of what I love about the place, and there was a further example this morning.
I woke to Radio Four, and an only slightly tongue in cheek discussion about what you should call the civil partner of someone with a title. Laddy, for the male partner of a lord, was one of the better suggestions. (Doesn't seem to be on the web unfortunately, although you can find Today here.)
