    Hardening of the arteries? ;)

    He is 87...why are Lords of that age still allowed a platform in the HoL (& paid for it)?

    One might equally ask, why the Daily Mirror, @monicabilongame or anyone else is still interested in giving the oxygen of publicity to his views?

    For no other reason than the fact that he is a Tory??? :rolleyes:

    Yes, perhaps it is time he quit the Lords.

    However, I would imagine that being a victim in an hotel during an IRA bomb attack; suffering serious injuries including post-traumatic stress; a lifetime of caring for a wife who was permanently paralysed in the same attack along with the mental deterioration of old age would be enough to cause anyone to make some questionable comments.

    Indeed. I don't deny that he (& his wife) suffered terribly as a result of Brighton bombings.

    But his comments quoted here are the ramblings of an old, confused man...and they do him no favours, nor do they the HoL as an institution that should command respect.
