Despite David Lloyd George's sale of peerages – allegedly for too little – there has never really been clarity on what membership of the House of Lords is worth – until today.

For some people, to be granted a peerage is the peak of a lifetime's ambition, a hard-earned entry to the most exclusive club in London.

Can there be a better way to arrive at a hotel late on a hot afternoon than for someone to welcome you with a cold beer? After a trip through the mountains of Washington state, and a couple of hours' tangling with Seattle's rush-hour traffic, I turned up in the chic, conspiratorial foyer at 5.40pm.
