Via The Lords Blog, comes an internet joke from the peerage.
Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, is my noble friend aware that, as a person over 60, I am continually bombarded with spam emails? They are always the same and are usually about penile extensions, Viagra or inkjet cartridges. Do I look like a man who requires inkjet cartridges?
Ho, ho, ho.
This is the same Lord MacKenzie who has fair pissed off the righteous in the past.
Lord Mackenzie, a former chief superintendent who advises the Home Office on law and order issues, claimed he had been out of the country at the time and had not been driving the car.
The decision infuriated road safety campaigners
Amy Aeron-Thomas, director of Roadpeace, said: 'It might not have involved a gun or a knife, but at 45mph, Lord Mackenzie's car would have killed any pedestrian in its path.'
Except that it didn't, of course.
And he is also the same Lord MacKenzie who, after being linked with a prostitute in 2003, let his hormones get the better of him again soon after.
Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate walked out on his childhood sweetheart Jean and now lives with Debbie Glaister – described by his estranged wife as ‘a stick-thin Barbie-doll lookalike’.
