BBC NEWS | Northern Ireland | Troubles victims' payment planned
The government is to be asked to pay £12,000 to the families of all those killed during the Troubles - including members of paramilitary groups.

The families of paramilitary victims, members of the security forces and civilians who were killed will all be entitled to the same amount.

The Consultative Group on the Past..., co-chaired by Lord Eames and Denis Bradley, is expected to say there should be no hierarchy of victims and that everyone should be treated in the same way.

That would mean the family of the IRA Shankill bomber Thomas Begley would receive the same for his death as those of the families of the nine civilians he killed.

Likewise, the families of two UVF members killed while they planted a bomb that also killed three members of the Miami Showband in 1975 will be entitled to the same payment as those of the victims.

Devil's Kitchen has a word for Lord Eames and Denis Bradley. Let me concur with him.

Find myself not at allshocked at the alleged revelation in the Sunday Times that four New Labour peers have in essence allegedly agreed to accept bribes for tabling amendments to Laws to benefit Commercial interests of the people offering to pay them.

It's just another example of Government corruption.

And we are not talking minor amounts; one of them allegedly wanted £120,000 per year!

So politics on every level in this country is peopled by people with their snouts in the trough to rip this Country off for as much as they can.

Starting with the Councillors, whose allowances now are so substantial they amount to a salary along with their redundancy and retirement packages.

To MPS who seem capable of attracting Part time jobs with multinationals alongside their Parliamentary duties(although of course with no potential conflict of interest, No, No never!!!!).

Finally to the Lords who along with their 'allowance' of up to £300 per day are now, at least on the Labour benches, apparently selling off the law of this country to the Highest bidder!

But are we surprised?

No, not when we remember their role model, Tony Blair, Mr Teflon, who has prostituted himself around the world taking money where he can get it, trading on his reputation as British PM.

The Christian who definitely begins at home, his home!

This warmonger and war criminal has sold this country down the river and left in charge an incompetent buffoon who is even more rapidly destroying our economy than Bliar and Bush destroyed Iraq with their illegal war and both of whom supported the Israeli war crimes in Gaza.

So a few Lords trying to 'trouser' as much as they can should be no surprise.

But forgive me, isn't this in essence 'Treason' for which I believe they can still be hanged?
