Lord Sewel's real crime was joining the House of Lords in the first place

What was the most shocking thing about former Deputy Speaker of the Lords John Sewel’s conduct in the last few days? Was it the moment that he was caught on film, released by the Sun on Sunday, saying that he’d quite like an Asian prostitute to join him and his powder-snorting female companions, because, ‘They sort of look innocent but you know they’re whores. That’s a nice combination, isn’t it?’ Was it the moment he addressed his expenses in conversation with the women; ‘£200 a day?’ they exclaim, and he replies, ‘It’s not for lunch, lovey darling, it’s paying for this’? Or was it, perhaps, something a little more mundane: the article he’d published on the Huffington Post a few days prior, which praised the House of Lords for having ‘come a long way since 2010 in improving its regulation of its Members and punishing the small number who misbehave’? Having appointed himself as policeman of the peerage, Sewel truly is a spectacularly ironic case of how the mighty hath fallen.
