Anyone who tries to convince me that the banking system and political system in the UK are not run like Old Boy's clubs, would find it a very difficult call. It is also time that the anachronistic slumber party called 'The House of Lards', should be close forthwith.

It gets very depressing reading and seeing media reports, because it would appear that 'failures' are being rewarded for non-achievements and perhaps wrongful doings, which can only be wrong for the future generation of possible honest citizens.

Come the next election, and what will the public do about it- Absolutely nothing !!.

May be, if he can't afford his normal food bills, due to his "sacking" from the Commons, he will be able to claim them on his H of Ls expense account!! After all, we can't have a "Good servant" going short can we?
