Isn't it telling how those - like Cherie Blair - who were most closely ideologically aligned with the sort of PC-Class War thinking that pushed most vociferously for the 'reform' of the House of Lords (or taking revenge on the Hereditaries as I call it) - are so quick to grab a life peerage?
This is the Establishment having a laugh. She will be invited to all kinds of posh events and everyone will be watching for her gaffes and having a jolly good time taking the pxss out of her social ineptitude. What better way to embarrass Blair? Although I did like DrunkenIrish's bit about machine guns.
Still at least we'll know where she is when the time comes and Westminsters only about 20 minutes for me on the Underground. Sadly I've only got a hockeystick and some blunt kitchen knives so may have to stop off at a Homebase first.
