Two Labour peers are facing suspension from the British House of Lords – the first since 1642 – after a report found them guilty of offering to amend legislation in exchange for payments. The Lords privileges committee found that Lord Truscott and Lord Taylor of Blackburn had “failed to act on their personal honour” after they offered their services to undercover reporters from the Sunday Times posing as lobbyists who wanted to amend government legislation. Followers of the Firepower saga will recognise Lord Truscott as an associate of Frank Timis, the convicted former heroin user who is said to be building the new FirepowerGreen Power Corporation – in London with Tim Johnston.
