Peer non­sense

Daily Record - - NEWS -

LAZY Lords tak­ing home more than the av­er­age wage for do­ing noth­ing is a na­tional out­rage.

Un­elected peers do­ing ab­so­lutely no work but still claim­ing a £300-a-day tax-free al­lowance while or­di­nary peo­ple across the coun­try strug­gle to make ends meet is enough to make your blood boil.

Many peers work hard, have valu­able ex­per­tise and per­form an im­por­tant role scru­ti­n­is­ing leg­is­la­tion – es­pe­cially with Brexit on the hori­zon.

The good eggs are be­ing let down by the greedy, pompous and in­suf­fer­able par­a­sites in their ranks.

And how­ever valu­able some con­tri­bu­tions are, the fact the UK still has an un­elected cham­ber re­mains a demo­cratic dis­grace.
