Nicky Morgan, who resigned as an MP at the last election, and Zac Goldsmith, an ex-Tory minister who lost his seat at the election, have been sworn into the unelected and unaccountable House of Lords.
As per usual, the Tories are stuffing their friends into lucrative and influential posts. It doesn’t matter if they lose their seats or don’t even bother to face their constituents, Boris Johnson will look after them while austerity slashes incomes and people work for poverty wages.
Labour are complicit in allowing the House of Lords to exist with many former MPs and MSPs taking seats there.
UK democracy is broken.
