John Sewel

Interesting choice of spokes-person to talk about a sex scandal

Radio National in Australia had an interview this morning with the spokesman from the UK’s Electoral Reform Society about the Lord Sewel?hooker sting and sex scandal.

Calls for reform of the House of Lords are gaining momentum in the UK, following the extraordinary scandal that has engulfed the deputy speaker of the House of Lords, Lord Sewel, who was secretly filmed allegedly snorting cocaine and cavorting with prostitutes.

The footage released by The Sun newspaper also showed him making disparaging remarks about a number of senior politicians, including the Prime Minister David Cameron.

Lord Sewel has now resigned, but the scandal has reignited calls for urgent reform of the upper House of Parliament, with many saying the time has come for the peers to go.

The UK’s Electoral Reform Society has long campaigned for an elected House of Lords. ? Read more »

Hookers upset with Hooker sting that brought down a Labour Lord

It seems that hookers have ethics far more so than the politicians they root.

They’re upset that the two hookers who ran the hooker sting on Lord Sewel have lowered the reputation of hookers in general.

Lord Sewel, eh? Or John Buttifant Sewel if you prefer. By now, we?ve all had the sight of his orange bra burned into our consciousness, seethed as we listened to his racist remarks about Asian women, shaken our heads over the fact that it?s public money ? our money ? he?s spending on cocaine and sex workers. Lord Sewel has resigned and there are few tears to be shed.

But what of the women in the coke-snorting, bra-wearing, Cameron-slagging video? Purveyors of the ?sordid sex party? as The Sun put it. Because, as much as Lord Sewel used these sex workers as props for his naughty night ? at one point, you?ll remember, he?s sniffs a line off a woman?s breast ? so too has The Sun. Their role is clear: wanton accessories in a lurid scandal.

Well London escorts are fed up with the whole affair. Perhaps none more than Lydia*, who, a few years ago, was herself outed by a tabloid as a part-time sex worker, a situation which cost her a public-sector career and lost her friends.

?Seeing someone?s personal life splashed across the paper still makes me feel sick,? Lydia confides. ?Regardless of what you think of them. When it happened to me, it turned my life upside down.? ?? Read more »

Do we need a House of Lords?

2v-Lord-Sewell-Image-Sun

The Telegraph provides us with some evidence that a House of Lords would be quite useful…at the very least for the entertainment prospects having one delivers.

Some people, such as the Prime Minister, think that Lord Sewel should quit the House of Lords after apparently being caught in a sex and drugs sting. What they do not realise is that John Buttifant Sewel was simply upholding the finest traditions of the Upper House.

Indeed his exploits look positively tame compared to some. If you really want to see a rogue in ermine, check out this list – gathered from our extensive obituaries archive – of seven deadly miscreant peers.

Snorting cocaine off of a hooker’s tits is hardly resigning material…hells teeth there is a prominent Auckland business man and knight of the realm whose son in law does that. He should be the first candidate in a NZ House of Lords.

One of the Telegraph’s naughty peers is Lord Kagan:

Kagan’s domestic arrangements were also far from straightforward; he claimed to have had 40 mistresses by the age of 60. “My wife is not interested in fidelity,” he explained. “But no-one has ever taken her place in my life. Marriage is for keeps.”
