But on to the politicians who have been put forward for ennoblement, and here we see favours returned in no style at all. Gisela Stuart, for starters, who abandoned the party that had supported her for so many years and sided with the lawbreakers of Vote Leave, prepared to go along with a campaign based on rank dishonesty.
There's party loyalty for you
As the Mail has put it, “Former Labour MPs Ian Austin and John Woodcock have also been nominated for peerages after both men urged Labour voters to back Mr Johnson rather than Jeremy Corbyn in the 2019 General Election. They both had backed remain in 2016 but stood down at the general election after leaving Labour”. John Woodcock, who quit before a complaint against him was heard. That John Woodcock.
Another who ran away from his electorate
Frank Field is merely a has-been. Gisela Stuart was overrated as an MP - the myth that she had held Birmingham Edgbaston through sheer force of personality was bust when Preet Gill turned the seat from a marginal one to safe Labour in 2017 - and she is now remembered only as a turncoat who went along with the Vote Leave con.
Sneering all the way to the bank
That those people are being offered peerages shows just how rotten the political establishment has become. Good riddance to all of them.
