More than 20 peers expected to force changes to the Brexit Bill this week are still earning tens of thousands of pounds from Brussels, it can be revealed.
Lord Mandelson, Labour’s former communications director, Lord Kinnock, the party’s former leader, and Lord Patten, who served in Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet, all still receive EU pensions.
Many other former MEPs and European commissioners are also receiving payouts from a Brussels pension pot estimated to be worth £10 million.
And it’s scandalous. They don’t even have to declare their interest when they speak.
