Bizarre claims from Tory peer in the House of Lords…

Good spot by Gary Fennelly from the House of Lords proceedings on Monday. The Tory Lord James of Blackheath. 2 hours and 30 minutes you can pick up the thread of a strange passage in which he claims he’s written off more than a £1 Billion of the IRA’s money. Besides being completely off the point of the debate itself, the figures he mentions seem way above anything realistic.

I wonder if there are health issues involved?
