After serving as government whip in the House of Lords under four Tory Prime Ministers, Bertie Denham, aka Lord Denham of Weston Underwood, might be forgiven for being tired with the sound of his own voice. But the hereditary peer has begun a new career - as a reader of verse. His latest offering, for which he has placed an ad in the London Library Magazine, is Victorian Plums, a CD of three poems he likes: Lewis Carroll's The Hunting Of The Snark; Edward Fitzgerald's The Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam; and the Ballad Of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde. 'I recorded some of my favourite poems a few years ago, which was moderately successful,' he says. 'Just to record one of the poems requires a couple of mornings in the recording studio - and a large glass water.' Read More on dailymail.
