Why does Archer still have a peerage?

Can anyone explain why that slimeball Archer is still a peer? Is there some constitutional reason why he cannot be stripped of his peerage or why it does not happen automatically when a peer goes to jail? It's a scandal that he got so far up the greasy pole in the first place but holding onto to his peerage after all he has done makes his smug face even more punchable.

'Cos he is a politician, rich and probably knows where a few (many) skeletons are kept.

However, Archy boy can say what he likes - putting that into effect may be a bit different.

Don't get too het up about Lord A keeping his title. After all he is apparently still allowed to describe himself as an author...

Auld-Yin is probably right ref the 'skeletons'.
Why do you think the slease-balls on the left are still milking the system?
Kinnock family, Mandelson et al.........................

Yes. Same as 'Lord' Twisted Firestarter Watson, author of the bill to ban fox hunting in Scotland, currently enjoying the hospitality of Windsor Hotels. I suppose if a real noble can't be busted then there the same rules apply to pretend ones like ex con Archer and Prisoner Watson.

Knights are liable to disrating though.

he probably helped bury a few.
I didn't come here to praise (enter name of your choice) but to bury him(her).

To paraphrase an olde English scribbler. 8)
