Lords Standards Chief Quits After Drug Claims

Sky News

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords has resigned after a national newspaper published video of him apparently taking drugs with prostitutes.

Baron John Sewel stepped down from his post after the revelations appeared in The Sun On Sunday.

The peer, who was once a key ally of Tony Blair, was in charge of upholding standards in the Lords.

In a statement to Sky News, Lord Sewel said: “I confirm that I have been in touch with the Lord Speaker and have informed her of my resignation as Deputy Speaker and Chairman of Committees.”

The Lords Speaker, Baroness D’Souza, said Lord Sewel’s behaviour was “shocking and unacceptable”.

She said she was now referring him to the Metropolitan Police for investigation.

In a statement she said: “Today’s revelations about the behaviour of Lord Sewel are both shocking and unacceptable.

“Lord Sewel has this morning resigned as Chairman of Committees.

“The House of Lords will continue to uphold standards in public life and will not tolerate departure from these standards.

“These serious allegations will be referred to the House of Lords Commissioner for Standards and the Metropolitan Police for investigation as a matter of urgency.”

The Sun On Sunday published video and photographs which it said showed 69-year-old Lord Sewel taking drugs with prostitutes at his flat in Dolphin Square, London.

It said the footage was filmed last week.

Lord Sewel was appointed a junior Scotland minister following Mr Blair’s first election victory in 1997.

The married father-of-four is a former vice-principal of Aberdeen University and was leader of Aberdeen District Council in the late 1970s.

The emergence of the film comes just a few days after Lord Sewel unveiled new powers to expel peers for bad behaviour, saying: ‘The actions of a few damage our reputation. Scandals make good headlines.’

He wrote on the Huffington Post website: ‘The actions of a few damage our reputation. Scandals make good headlines.

‘All Members now sign a declaration to obey the code and the seven principles of public life… The requirement that Members must always act on their personal honour has been reinforced.’

According to reports, the peer, who claimed more than £403,000 in expenses between 2001 and 2010, was caught on camera snorting three lines of cocaine in three-quarters of an hour.

Patria says:-

Does this explain all those exorbitant expenses and lavish allowances MPs and peers receive at our expense? How much Colombian marching powder can one buy for £300 – which is the sum peers pocket every day simply for turning up at the House of Frauds?

These latest revelations add more force to Patria’s demand for the abolition of the House of Lords and its replacement with an English Parliament, democratically elected on the First Past The Post principle. For more information, follow the link on the home page to Patria’s Manifesto.
