See 419ners , crooks and jailbird who are members of the House of Lords in UK !

The British parliamentary system is not a saintly concept . It gives rooms and accommodate miscreants and frauds to Lord it over the citizens .

Imagine the House of Lords accepting rules that give right to jail birds and crooks to take full privilege after serving found guilty of criminal and heinous offences .  

Jeffrey Archer 
One of the rules christened Archaic rules allow  corrupt peers taking   up their seats after committing serious offences.

A  investigation exposed Lord Hanningfield for abusing the £300 daily attendance rate through a “clock in, clock out” scam.
We caught him going home after spending just minutes at the Lords.
The standards watchdog banned him until May 2015 but the former Tory council leader can take up his usual place once the ban is over.
The same rules applied to former Tory peer and novelist Jeffrey Archer. He was jailed for perjury and perverting the course of justice in 2001. He lied during his 1987 libel case over allegations he had sex with a prostitute.
Lord John Taylor of Warwick was jailed in 2011 for fiddling his expenses, relating to overnight stays in the capital.
He has kept his seat and now regularly claims thousands more through the expenses system.
Labour’s Baroness Uddin also attends despite being previously banned for making claims of £123,349 “in bad faith” relating to a flat she said was her main home.
And Lord Bhatia, who was banned over a second home expenses scandal, is back on the red benches.
