The Queen has also conferred a life peerage on former Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Ian Blair.

That upsets me rather more!

After the Gillian Duffy incident this one shows Brown in a good light as he nominated her.
Quote
Sue Nye found herself in the spotlight during the election campaign when Gordon Brown appeared to blame her for his encounter with Gillian Duffy - the Rochdale pensioner he was recorded privately calling "bigoted".
Mr Brown, who forgot to remove a microphone, was overheard saying: "I don't know why Sue brought her up towards me."

Not sure it shows him in a good light. It would have been seen as sour grapes if he hadn't, it being traditional to nominate those in her position, whatever their record.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Lord Prescott of Hull

If you add the Conservative and Lib Dem peers together they have a majority in the Lords.  If you don't add them together then DC will have to appoint a lot of new peers in order to have a majority.  Wonder which way he'll play it?
There are currently 704 members of the Lords.  Looks like some major pruning is in order Wink

Perhaps it was something to do with authorising a system that allowed several innocent people to be shot on the street.
