McConnell - just one of more than 50 new Peers foisted on us by Brown

Labour-apparatchik, former First Minister of Scotland and currently MSP for Motherwell and Wishaw, Jack McConnell, has taken his seat in the House of Lords, following his ennoblement in Gordon Brown's 'Dissolution Honours' on departing as Prime Minister.

Just one of more than 50 people who will be on the public payroll 'til they die. That's bad enough, but these 'numpties' will be influencing legislation in the UK for decades. Other 'worthies' whom Gordon Brown has foisted upon us as life-long legislators include John Reid, Helen Liddell and Des Browne. Thanks for nothing, Gordon!
