THE HOUSE OF LORDS - WHAT IS IT?

there are 739 of them

their average age is 70

they cost the taxpayer at least £115k per annum each

they get paid £300 just for signing in - a person on the minimum wage (as millions are) gets £52 for an 8 hour day

they eat in taxpayer-subsidised restaurants

they drink taxpayer-subsidised champagne 

some of them are accused of pederasty

some of them are accused of pedophilia

many of them earn extra cash as company directors

the hereditary ones are descended from Norman mercenaries

the non-hereditary ones are party political placemen

Nobody understands what purpose they serve.

1. Fourteen MPs attended a recent debate on welfare.  645 attended the debate on a 10% rise for themselves.  And....

2. Far more hours were spent debating the ban on hunting foxes, than were spent debating the invasion of Iraq.

The result of the first was an indiscernible rise in foxes, the result of the second was FIVE MILLION orphans.
