Lordy lordy!


Recommended Posts

it sells papers and detracts from the economic downturn for a while. as for tip of the iceberg who knows (apart from the lords themselves) and what will happen to them. will they be fined, de-lorded, made to pay the money back, will the legislation be declared null and void.


in a word no. they will be embarrassed for a while but that is about all. :oops::twisted:

Well according to the Leader in the Lords, they could be named and shamed...and she said that would be a great punishment. Really. :wink:


As I understand the rules, which are designed to drive a coach and horses through, Lords can accept payment for acting as a consultant on a particular issue. Lords unlike MPs are not paid unless they are also a Government Minister etc, but do receive a generous allowance.


My guess is that nothing will come of this matter, as probably the rules as they are will not have been broken.


The lobbying system is a long established and accepted method of trying to get laws changed / introduced / repealed....often conducted over a nice meal or day out. :wink:
