Payments for attending House of Lords slashed! Justice for all says Boris

PM Boris Johnson believes that in these hard times, the most well off must share the financial burden.   The daily tax free payment for each member of the House of the Lords has been cut from £323 to £162 a day.

There has been a most unreasonable backlash from the Lords, who are even demanding a “hardship” fund!

Several Lords were known to turn up, sign in, stay 10 minutes and bog off home!  Not much sympathy for that, I’m afraid…..

PM Boris is also getting tough on crime, reports the Sunday Express, because he is well aware of the anger people feel at soft sentences.  His blueprint for reform includes:

Life orders for child killers

Life orders for 18 to 21 year olds when the crime demands the severest sentences

Longer sentences for vandalising memorials

Widening the abolition of halfway release

No more automatic half way release for offenders of serious public protection concern

And a raft of further measures. In this article, from the Sunday Express, Boris Johnson explains his plans.
