Two Lords a Leaping into Suspension

Ulster Unionist Lord Laird has been banned from the Lords for four months, while Labour’s Lord Mackenzie has picked up a six month ban after they were caught out in a newspaper lobbying sting in June.

They should be banished forever.

UPDATE: Here’s a thought. There were three peers caught in the fake company lobbying sting: How did Lord Cunningham avoided a suspension?

Does his membership of the privy council make him immune from censure?
