It seems that 'Lord' Archer may also have embezzeled up to £12m ($20million) in funds he raised to 'help Kurds in Northern Iraq' as well as having committed perjury and ended up in Jail for 4 years.
Perhaps Labour needs to stand by its promise NOW and simply abolish the House
of Lords immediately and hold PUBLIC elections for an elected 'upper' house
so these people act as brakes on stupid legislation from Westminster but
who are responsible to the voting public and not some archaic Royalist bullsh-t.
