Lord Truscott and Lord Taylor of Blackburn were unanimously found to have breached the Upper House's code of conduct which requires members to "always act on their personal honour". It is the first time in 350 years that peers have been banned in this way.
Peers voted to suspend them until the end of the parliamentary session, about six months, the maximum penalty the House can impose.
Wow. That'll learn 'em. Six months' suspension for accepting bribes to change the law of the UK to the benefit of a corrupt company.
Fuck's sake. Keep on, folks. Keep on. But when heads wind up on pikes and people don't really care whether you were guilty or not, don't fucking come crying to me.
