"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Brenda Dean: Who Art Thou?

A note to the Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde:

Dear Brenda

Do us all a favour and relinquish your peerage if you're too girly to be 'shocked'.
Love from me

It's worth noting that she was given her peerage by John Major:
SOGAT
Taylor Wimpey
'Shocked' Peer

If she's 'shocked' by something which may or may not be true of the Opposition front bench, how does she think the rest of us feel about the gross abuse of power by this government? She's a Labour Peer who seems quite happy to advance a Party issue but doesn't think about the authority - the people - she's supposed to represent. The HoL was, historically, a check on the HoC. It's all gone out of the window and we have no representation at all - not in the HoC or the HoL.
