There are many odd things about the House of Lords. One minor anomaly is that lords don’t get paid a salary.
But they do get a tax free allowance of £335.50 for every day they bother to turn up at parliament.

Gordon Brown warned this week against “pessimism” over the economy.
Meanwhile Richard Lambert, the head of the bosses’ CBI organisation said Britain is not in any danger of going bust and we should be careful not to “get swept away by the gloomsters”.
