  1. Since they started televising the House of Lords, I am amazed that there haven’t been riots about them lying around sleeping and getting £323 a day for turning up, plus other expenses. That’s £6,500 minimum a month for doing absolutely nothing.
    I can only presume nobody has ever watched it.
    Cheers, Pete.
