The gravy train
« on: Mar 30, 2019, 03:06:35 PM »
The house of lords this week voted in a new member, voted in by fifteen members already members,an aristocrat, name of Danial Mosley son of Oswold Mosley leader of Englands blackshirts a supporter of Adolph Hitler ,Only hereditary peers could vote, he was voted in (of course) on a salary of 305 a day for life yes LIFE, and he need  not do a thing, is it not time the Lords were dispatched from parliament. How many on this gravy train.

No its not just  time,,,,,,,,,,,, its LONG overdue, for them to be dossing around with little, if any, real purpose. taking the p**s out of the taxpayer funded 300+ a day.

Different times, Mosley supported Hitler, along with the Royal family & virtually all of the aristocracy, but Mosely's the one who's always under the cosh for it.

If WW2 could have been avoided just think of all the lives that would have been saved.

And in the end all it achieved was delaying Germany's ambition to be the dominant force in Europe by 20 years.

I agree that the entire HoL should be scrapped, along with the HoC if we stay in the EU.

They work a bit like the e.u. don't they. There aren't all that many hereditary lords, most are failed politicians with life peerages who get the same privileges. My view is that life peerages should be scrapped as such and failed politicians should at least be re-appointed after a couple of years.

Kinnocks' done alright out of the system.

Failed MP & failed Labour leader, non-job in the EU, non-jobs in the EU for his wife & family & another non-job in the HoL.

He's put his own complete meaning to the phrase 'taking the pіss' !!!  ???

That's the real reason why the political class wants us to remain in the eu. It has nothing to do with just-in-time supply chains or ferries.

Correct & while they dislike us leavers, it's the Remainers that they're laughing at.

I'd rather be disliked than laughed at.

It's almost unbelievable that the numerous non jobs out there, the house of lords, the quangos, development boards and the like, are not enough for the troughers. They want to mince about in the palaces of Brussels and Strasbourg too.
