Scrounging Lords Take Break Until October

Fresh from having the debate on their survival kicked into the long grass, the 765 peers sitting in the House of Lords will celebrate by taking a 10-week summer holiday this evening.

The House rises until October 8th, meaning that its members will have to wait to enjoy the £175,000 of taxpayers’ money they have just spent on revamping the decor in their parliamentary offices. Our dosh has been spent on dozens of new pieces of art and statues, including a bust of Prince Philip and a painting of the Jubilee procession. Come back Nick, all is forgiven…

    The Lords do a better job than MPs tho.

    So long and thanks for all the vegetarian chicken

      Her thanks no doubt would be to Lord Ahmed – prolific property developer totally reliant upon his bank funding for building his properties – who just happened to head an APPG – called SAFE Struggle Against Financial (Bank) Exploitiation – an APPG which was set up with the aim back around 2003 of bringing the bankers before Parliament to bring them to account.

      How NOT ODD that subsequently the whole APPG was conveniently collapsed and that the issue of errant bankers [fat cat bonuses / people being ripped off] was kicked into the long grass then?

      This is of Lord Ahmed! – who ‘killed a man’ in the fast lane on the M5 – while he was ‘texting on his mobile phone’… funny how the public never found out who the ‘journalist’ Ahmed was texting at the time was; and funny how the public never found out what the series of texts were about …

      Don’t they just look after their own – these Lords who any true God fearing Christian might otherwise think that by using the word Lord; they are in fact taking the pee out of the God fearing Christians such as they are ‘taking their Lords’ name in vain?’

      Stupid Christians!!!! – They’re just simple easy lion meat. Have been so easily duped for so many decades – who would’ve guassed it.

    Dear Guido and Team says:

    Seeing as mistakes seem to be going to pixel lately I would like to suggest a new disciplinary code for your staff.

    Any mistake that goes to pixel the staff member responsible should “Take one for the team”

    I believe that this system will soon eradicate mistakes.

    “Come back Nick, all is forgiven…”

    No, it really isn’t. The best Clegg can hope for is to be forgotten.

    “the 765 peers sitting in the House of Lords”

    I bet theres hundreds of them that haven’t actually sat in the house of lords in the last 5 years.

    Sir Trev Skint MP says:

    This is bad news for our noble friends, they won’t be able to claim 400 quid-a-night in bunk-up fees!

    Polly Toynbee is also a very stupide person

      But I like her!

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Polly Toynbee is by no means a stupid person – she is a “very” – devious, manipulative, duplicitous, fork-tongued, evil, marxist loving communist Zioloon.

    Ploppy Toybee says:

    The government are going to force people to shovel snow at 3 in the morning in their underwear. It’s official. I have it good authority. I never lie. And they’re going to reduce the minimum wage to 5 pence a week.

    Gordon Brown says:

    Disgraceful. Imagine that, being so lazy and getting paid at the same time. If only everyone had my integrity of doing the job they’re paid to do.

    The Tit in No 10 –speechyfying like the PR (Up The Arse) Pro He is says:

    I say you jolly chaps!! None of this matters !!! the main thing is that my really super-duper plans for bum-sex marridge go ahead watt!! Whatage?? Water???

    It doesn’t seem a very good likeness of HRH.

      Leave the poor lad alone – he’s out of your league. Try cottaging – it’s probably more your level.

          I’ll pass, if it’s all the same, thanks. I’d rather watch A*****l win a’ ‘ome and lie in a big crisp bed with Jack Dromey’s big crisp old lady.

          Blowing Whistles says:

          Conor Burns MP LGBT mouthpiece – has got a lot of problems at present – one of his constituents has been ‘harassing him’ so he said – bent, corrupt, duplicitous wanker – who reeled back in his chair [Fri 13th July - 12:18] to avoid accepting a piece of paper which he thought was a ‘writ being served upon him’ – it wasn’t it was an email which he refuses to do anything about -Criminally corrupt Homosexual that he is. Cited David Laws MP’s attempt to silence his expenses abuse by squealing homophobia!!!

    10 weeks off should be the holiday allowance of border guards.
    Reading the paper and saying ‘stand behind the line..take your passport out of the funky case please… anything to declare?’ really takes it out of the lads.

    Maybe twelve weeks rest is needed.

      annette curton says:

      Surely the term: border guards is an oxymoron anyway, they let them all in but nobody can get any of them out afterwards.


      • 55
        Blowing Whistles says:

        Blair let them all in – he was pandering to the greediest profiteering SOB’s fat cats in the city – ‘Cheap Labour =s maximising profit’ – DoHHHH!!!!

        There’s no difference between Commies and extremist Capitalists. There’s just those in between who daren’t mention it.

    Calamity Clegg says:

    Lord Oldshit. The greatest advert for the complete eradication of the LibDemons at the General Election.

    At least a bronze bust and a decent figurative picture are likely to hold their value; they might even increase in a century or so.

    Better than much of the other rubbish they spend money on.


  17. 41
    Arty farty says:

    Why all the masonic hands resting on Lord Baden Powell, without hat.


  18. 42
    Dianne Abbot MP says:

    The bust of Prince Philip is a masterpiece, I presume it was made by a West Indian mother. I fully approve of the choice of colour.


  19. 43
    Screamin Lord Filtch says:

    That is 50 attendance allowances that I cannot claim. I am goiong to be out of pocket by at least £20,000. Stupid bastards.


  20. 45
    Baroness Uddin says:

    Can I still get my expenses, innit?

      Lord Phillips of the Supine Court is a despicable dirty 2 faced fork tongued zioloon – he and his’ days are numbered.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
