Lib Dems “most sweary peers in House of Lords”

Something to amuse you on a dark January evening from iNews:

Our Lib Dem Lords make six out of the top ten profane peers

Six of the top 10 “sweary peers” are Lib Dems, with Baroness Sarah Ludford leading the pack with 51 profanities in 2017. It’s a pretty admirable feat given that peers only managed to score 287 swears between them across the whole year.

They have been joking about it on Twitter:

The Leader of the our Lords group was perhaps upset that he didn’t make the list:

Sarah Ludford was modest:

Liz Barker is such a diplomat:

It’s a different story with our MPs, though. Not one of them made the list of sweary MPs, which was topped by Labour’s Jess Phillips.

    Mr Parker might consider that one of the reasons that we Liberals have survived in much worse times than these is that we have always had a good sense of humour including the self-deprecating kind. (some of the more slightly self-pompous members of our party might also think about that!)

  • Well there is a lot to swear about at the moment!!

    Was “Tory” one of the profanities?
