Zac wins a seat on the (Privy) Coun­cil

Scottish Daily Mail - - Eden Confidenti­al -

EVEN if Zac Gold­smith fails to cling on to his highly mar­ginal Rich­mond Park seat — with a ma­jor­ity of just 45 it’s the Lib Dems’ No. 1 tar­get — he will leave Par­lia­ment with a bauble.

On Wed­nes­day, the eco-cam­paign­ing Tory was sworn in by the Queen as a mem­ber of the

Privy Coun­cil, which ad­vises the monarch. It means he will have ‘the Right Hon­ourable’ be­fore his name, what­ever the elec­tion re­sult.

Zac’s fa­ther James Gold­smith was awarded a knight­hood but never made a Privy Coun­sel­lor. A friend tells me: ‘Zac’s very hon­oured.’
