QC or not QC; That Is The Question

Anyone who is wondering how Harriet Harman, a solicitor who is a full-time politician, should be a Queens Counsel will be relieved to hear that she is only an honorary one. This is a courtesy granted to lawyers who are MPs, however eminent or otherwise they are in the legal profession.

I am told that in the trade they are referred to as 'art silks'.

I couldn't resist this bit from Wikipedia:-
Despite a generally similar appearance, genuine silk has unique features that are distinguishable from artificial silk. However, in some cases art silk can be passed off as real silk to unwary buyers.
