No Telegraph, just noJuly 5, 2015 Tim WorstallUKIP9 CommentsLord Rannoch, one of only three peers in the House of Lords, Sigh. One of three UKIP peers. previousSo Schultzie is lying againnextWell, you know….. 9 thoughts on “No Telegraph, just no” bloke in france July 5, 2015 at 9:11 am Would that there were only three. And Matt Ridley, perhaps. Everyone knows there are far too many peers. The upcoming renovations seem a good opportunity to do some serious culling. dearieme July 5, 2015 at 11:34 am But, but, but … Lord Rannoch is peerless. nautical nick July 5, 2015 at 12:35 pm BiF: Maybe the SNP would advocate community peer-shooting parties on their nationalised moors…. Jack C July 5, 2015 at 1:18 pm So, there are 3 UKIP Peers, and 3 European Union Presidents. Who would win in a fight? Tim Worstall July 5, 2015 at 2:29 pm UKIP undoubtedly. Two of the three (I don’t know the third, the other two I have worked directly with) are crack shots, one with a rifle for deer, the other with a shotgun for rough shooting. Advantage of their being toffs, y’see? dearieme July 5, 2015 at 2:51 pm Depends whether they’ve kept their skills up, Tim. I was once a decent shot with a rifle – fifty years ago. Tim Worstall July 5, 2015 at 3:01 pm Pearson of Rannoch spends the entire autumn after deer on his Scottish estate…..I assume he’s still well up with it. PF July 5, 2015 at 3:19 pm “Depends” on what sort of fight… I’ve no idea, but perhaps Schultzy might prefer a spot of sumo… Or if Steve gets to decide it might be “cage, bare knuckle”…:) Jack C July 5, 2015 at 9:12 pm Rifles and shotguns, really? Not my idea of a Gentlemanly scrap. I have an idea that Van Rumpy-Pumpy would emerge as the victor, but without anyone knowing why, or how.
