LEFTY LORDS RIDE THE GRAVY TRAIN.

Byline: BRIAN READE Frank and fearless... (and funny)

The Mirror's brilliant expose of the freeloading peer only confirmed that the House of Lords is a medieval boil on the face of the so-called Mother of All Democracies.

But it's not Tory jailbirds like Lord Hanningfield, whose party demonises benefits claimants as wanting "something for nothing" then fill their boots with taxpayers' dough, who anger me most.

It's those hypocritical left-wing Labour MPs, who on retirement took their ermine-clad seat on the gravy train, under the pretence they were only entering the Lords to reform it.

How's that one panning out, comrades?
