Fast Forward! : Sack Sleazy Lord Sewel

Sack Sleazy Lord Sewel

In an excellent expose by the Sun, debauched drug taker and prostitute fancier Lord Sewel is under pressure to resign or be sacked from the House of Lords. Sewel has already resigned from his role of Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords and has been referred to the police.

Now there is a growing attempt to have sleazy Sewel resign his position or sack him from the Lords using the House of Lords (Suspension and Expulsion) Act 2015. This law ironically gained passage with the help of Lord Sewel. Under both scenarios this would end Lord Sewel’s otherwise successful political career. As the late Enoch Powell said “all political careers end in failure”…

Leading the charge is the Labour MP John Mann who said "He is a disgrace. He should retire and resign immediately … A lifetime ban would be the [standards] committee's only option. He needs to save them and himself further embarrassment and go now." The Daily Mail is also launching a campaign to ‘kick out the cocaine peer’.

Lord Sewel is no friend of the Conservatives describing David Cameron as "the most facile, superficial prime minister there's ever been", and Boris Johnson as "a joke". Get him out …

FROM THE ARCHIVES

On this day, 27th July, in 1663 the Second Navigation Act was passed by the English Parliament. You may think of England’s early empire was a bastion of free trade but you would be wrong. The Navigation Act required all traded goods from English colonies to pass through England so merchants paid more tariffs. This ‘mercantilist’ economy was believed to increase wealth, but it obviously didn’t. It wasn’t till the Dutch beat England in 1667 that these repressive laws started to come to an end. God bless those freedom loving Hollanders …
