What on earth persuaded anyone to put Gorbals Mick up for a peerage, and why didn't the Queen just say "No"? I believe she has some options in the matter when such a request is made.
The Great British Unwashed are absolutely sick of incompetence and greed being rewarded at the highest (or should that be the lowest?) level. I think the powers that be had better think again, if they do not want the riots on the streets that David Ceameron is so worried about!
