We have politicians owning a Puch (Fiat) 500, a former secretary of justice even a Velorex, a curious three-wheeled czech microcar, but a Member of Parliament with a 30s and a 60s Bentley as daily driver is something we can only dream about.

Where can you find someone: of cause in good old Great Britain. But even there, you will make it into the newspaper:

"Of late, he’s caused quite a stir by commuting from his home in Mayfair (he also has a rather lovely pile in Somerset) to Westminster in a grey 1968 Bentley that he bought at auction for £8,000 when he was just 22."  - Daily Mail Article

I'm aware, that the "Honourable Member for the 18th Century" as he is nicknamed by the media, due to his lifestyle and the opinions he holds is a controversial figure, therfor I want to point out, that this blog-entries is only about the classic car aspect. - I only want to add one small statement: there were no cars in the 18th century...
