Nepotism is a tricky thing. Where is the line between an innocent boost from Dad, Mum, Bro or Sis, and something less... acceptable.

With all the billions of fine folk on offer in the word's political or media stages, how odd it is to see the same names crop up, over and over, at the very top, and often concurrently: Bush, Miliband, Chakrabarti, Bhutto... the list of those who who lead us, in the family way, is long and legendary.

Maybe a bit too long?
