Oppose - Best know for being a member of the House of Commons and not a Peer. Also widely known for being an author, journalist and historian and no dosambiguation of this article title is required.--Lucy-marie (talk) 17:46, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Support. WP:NCPEER is quite clear. This chap is no longer wholly or exclusively known by his pre-peerage nomenclature. Kittybrewster 15:15, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Support per WP:NCPEER. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 20:35, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. Former politicians who have been ennobled are almost invariably known by their titles thereafter. -- Necrothesp (talk) 14:34, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Comment - This is not a Crystal Ball and what they are currently known is what we have to take as the current commonly used name. If in the future the individual is known regularly by their ennobled title then that would be grounds to change the article title. To though say, it is expected that the names they are known by will change is not how things work on Wikipeida.--Lucy-marie (talk) 17:34, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
