Baron Niles

A new Lib Dem peer!

The “Elect the Lords” campaign is highlighting some dodgy statistics concerning new Labour and the House of Lords:

“17 out of the 22 individuals who have donated more than £100,000 to the Labour Party in the past few years have received an honour; all but one of the individuals who have donated more than £1m have received a peerage. This is unacceptable in a modern democracy.”

“In nine years, Tony Blair has appointed more than 300 life peers – 50% more than any other Prime Minister in history. “

At electhelords.org.uk they are selling virtual peerages at bargain basement prices in order to fund their campaign.

I am now Baron Niles of Nottingham. I’m still thinking about what my baronial motto should be. Any suggestions?

    Congratulations, Lord Niles.

    How about librovox oratoris?

    Librivox even 🙂

    Librivox erratus? 🙂

    If you want to highlight the Librivox stuff ‘gloria in verba’ would work… or even simply ‘labra lege’.

    Though if you were to stick with labra lege I would feel compelled to try and work out the latin for ‘no more taxes’.
