Lord of Sound: Knighthood for club founder James Palumbo?
Sunday 14 July 2013
The nation’s nightclubbers could soon have one of their own to represent their interests in the House of Lords.
According to The Sunday Times, James Palumbo, the founder of the Ministry of Sound nightclub and record label, has been nominated for a peerage by Nick Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democrats.
Palumbo who has also tried his hand at novel writing lately, has given advice (and more than £500,000) to the Lib Dems for nearly a decade. If accepted, he will join his estranged father, the Tory peer Lord Palumbo, in the upper house.
But it remains to be seen whether the Conservatives choose to offer the same honour to their own millionaire, nightclub-owning supporter, Peter Stringfellow.
