Sir Clement Freud dies

Obviously the man was well-loved, but this paragraph had me laughing:
In 1978 he was in China with the more junior MP, Winston Churchill, the grandson of the former prime minister. When Churchill was given the best room in a hotel because of his family, Freud said it was the first time in his life that he had been "out-grandfathered".
