FROM UKIP’S DEPUTY LEADER Oh Lord, this cosy system of creating peers stinks!
I HAVE to say something about the case of poor Daniel Pelka, the five-year-old who had been tortured by his evil parents.
He was water-boarded, starved, locked in a cell without any windows and finally beaten into a coma from which he never woke up. His drug addict mother and stepfather were each locked up for 30 years.
I think life should mean life.
But my question is why did no-one step in to stop this abuse?
Daniel was only 23lbs when he died. He was seen scavenging through bins at school for food.
It had to be obvious what was going on. THE announcement that Peter Capaldi is to be the 12th Doctor Who is pure genius.
Yes, he’s Malcolm Tucker out of
– the nasty bastard who can’t stop shouting, swearing and bullying.
If he plays the Doctor as Malcolm Tucker, it’ll be the funniest incarnation ever – but would have to be shown after the watershed! LAST week the political class at Westminster brought democracy in this great country of ours into disrepute.
They created a further 30 peers, which means that the House of Lords is now stuffed with nearly 800 members, including 25 bishops. They’ve fewer councillors than UKIP, fewer MEPs and are nowhere in the polls.
Under the coalition agreement, which stated that the House of Lords should reflect the outcome of the general election, UKIP should already have over TWENTY peers.
We have three – all defections. The whole system STINKS.
It gets even worse when you look at the people who the political parties have sent up to the House of Lords.
My party said that it was ‘the Establishment rewarding the Establishment for being the Establishment’.
The lists are made up mainly of political donors, lobbyists and a few ex-politicians.
The Tory intake includes Sir Anthony Bamford (right) – the boss of JCB – whose associated companies have given the party nearly £5million.
There is also property businessman Howard Leigh, who has handed over £219,000 to the Conservatives.
The Lib Dems’ list includes Ministry of Sound founder James Palumbo, who has given the party almost £700,000.
Another, Rumi Verjee, has given the Lib Dems £770,000 since May 2010.
Labour are no better. Their list also rewards donors and money-men.
William Haughey, the fridge magnate, has given the party £1.3million since 2003.
Labour Party fund-raiser Jon Mendelsohn also gets a gong.
The whole rigged system proves that things haven’t changed in 400 years. When Parliament refused to pay for the lavish lifestyle of King James I, he simply created the new title of Baron – which all those appointed today become – and sold peerages. Today, it’s quite obvious that the Conservatives, the Lib Dems and Labour are doing the same.
But what do we do about it?
