Well, now that fatty Prescott has taken the ermine and the world has taken time to react, I suppose it's only fair that I point out the rampant hypocrisy of the left who have bitched and moaned about the shameful power that the unelected House of Lords has, yet have not found the energy to attack the cognitive dissonance of watching one of their heroes (and one who ironically moaned like a stuck pig about peerages to boot!) take the ermine and go sit in "the Other Place".
Politics is full of people who have no other motivation than their own furtherance. The hypocritical fuckface Prescott rode the wave of left-wing politics as far as it would take him, and then casually stepped off it and into the very chamber he'd spent his life complaining about.
Politics in the UK will never get better until tribal loyalists stop making excuses for the failures of their own tribe and accept that a politician being a member of your own tribe should require more accountability rather than a free ride.
