Well done Dennis

Revealed: Labour lords change laws for cash

We selected 10 Lords who already had a number of paid consultancies. The three Conservative peers did not return our calls and a Liberal Democrat and an Ulster Unionist both declined to help after meeting the undercover reporters.

Moonie offered to help for a fee of £30,000 a year and Snape indicated that he would charge £24,000. By contrast Lord Rogan, the Ulster Unionist peer, said: “If your direct proposal is as stark as for me . . . to help to put down an amendment, that’s a non-runner. A, it’s not right and b, my personal integrity wouldn’t let me do it.”

    Well done Lord Rogan. An honest man.

    “If your direct proposal is as stark as for me . . . to help to put down an amendment, that’s a non-runner. A, it’s not right and b, my personal integrity wouldn’t let me do it.”

    If there was an elected House of Lords (ho ho) Lord Rogan would get my vote.

    In these times of recession/depression, maybe we should take heart that some NuLabor lords allegedly are doing their best to support the enterprise culture thru a practical investment of their valuable time and energy while generally keep money circulating thru the system

    Fair play indeed to Denis Rogan. Always struck me as being a decent sort of fella.

    An honest and honourable politician, the fact that we should regard such a thing as remarkable should in itself be remarkable but alas it is a sad indictment of our society that our ‘honourable’ and ‘noble’ friends are usually far from being either.
