I am sure he is a nice chap…and I used to admire his principles. We really need to get rid of this expensive nonsense about the ‘House of Lords’ – ludicrous on the modern era…and quite unimportant as a ‘revising chamber’ ?
And yes…ordinary and all people matter… hierarchies remind me of the villainy of Aninal Farm. Orwell was right in so many ways. Pigs at The Trough fpr some now – at tax payer expense. I suspect they wouldn’t do it if they were UNPAID.
What do these ridiculous people who hot the dressing up box actually do to help our country. Fark all…it seems to me. But as I get older, I get more cynical with all honours… Geegaws and Baubles as they say in Glasgow.
I don’t need or want any Honours… Geegaws and meaningless baubles. And how much do their absurd robes cost…why can’t they just get a pair of trousers at Primark and a half decent shirt… do they need robes to do fuck all?
