    Peerages for Brexiters, Knighthoods for Tax dodgers


    4 Not allowed!
    The media normalises what I think is downright corruption

    Boris hands out peerages to MPs who backed Brexit, including some Labour MPs and even Brexit party MEPS. Presumably he got his brexit deal through parliament (or bought) on a promise of later reward?

    and get this, Theresa May's husband Philip May, who worked for a firm who avoided paying corporation tax whilst paying directors $43m during an 8 year period is given a Knighthood !

      That's clearly not true - the Tories are still polling well above 40%

      A Russian oligarch donor to the Conservative and Unionist Party gifted a peerage by the Tories.

      Remind me who Labour handed out peerages to ? Both parties are as bad as each other but only morons link it to Brexit.

      I'm not in favour of the honours system or the HoL but seeing that pretty much every peerage in this list has gone to a Brexiteer, you're being totally deluded if you think it has nothing to do with Brexit.

      Expect more peerages for Russian supporters of the Conservative party for several years to come and indeed in Johnson's eventual Resignation Honours list.

      I'm still waiting for @Bakerlite to explain why he " Shuddered" at the thought of a Labour Government but seems totally at ease with a Tory government propped up by Russian money? Lots of very large donations for individual MP's too....?

      Beat me to it!

      This isn't a new thing, a Boris thing or even a Tory thing.

      How do people think Labour donor Alan Sugar got his peerage
