Cameron plans to abuse honours system to bribe pro-EU campaigners

David Cameron is planning to reward up to 40 supporters of the EU with peerages(£) after the referendum.

The combined upper and lower houses of Parliament makes the UK's legislature the second largest in the world, second only to China's which administers a country of 1.36bn people.

Stuffing the House of Lords with political appointments by successive governments has grown the upper house to a whopping 850 members which, when combined with the 650 MPs in the lower house, makes a total of 1,500 lawmakers. That's one politician for every 43,000 people or thereabouts. In the United States there is one lawmaker for roughly 617,000 people.

Cameron's abuse of the civil service and honours system to support his pro-EU campaign shows him up for the bullying dictator he is.
