Mother of ex-Labour frontbencher Kate Osamor – who quit over drug dealing scandal involving her son – takes her own place in the House of Lords

The Baroness Osamor (pictured) was sworn into the House of Lords today, just days after her daughter Kate resigned from the Labour frontbench 

  • Martha Osamor, 78, was handed the peerage by her friend Jeremy Corbyn 
  • She is now entitled to claim a tax-free daily attendance allowance of £305  
  • It comes after her daughter Kate Osamor stepped down from Labour frontbench
  • The 50-year-old had kept employing her son Ishamel, despite drugs conviction 

WHHHAATTTTTTT????? What has this woman done other than be a friend of Jeremy Corby’s to receive a peerage? What sort of a political system is it that allows this to happen? Why has the House of Lords not been replaced with a body of representatives that is elected RATHER THAN APPOINTED????
