Unelected Lords have guzzled over 300 bottles of champagne and wine since the Tories’ crashed the economy, the SNP can reveal.

Obtained through a Freedom of Information Request, members of the House of Lords have spent over £10,500 on champagne and wine from 22 September to 8 January.

This included:

  • 111 bottles of champagne at a selling price of £53
  • 54 bottles of prosecco at a selling price of £30
  • 93 bottles of House of Lords 200ml prosecco at a selling price of £8.60
  • 37 bottles of champagne half bottles at a selling price of £27.70
  • 10 bottles of Gardet champagne at a selling price of £53
  • 5 bottles of House of Lords champagne at a selling price of £68
  • 4 bottles of House of Lords rose champagne at a selling price of £55.80
  • 3 bottles of prosecco rose at a selling price of £28.50
  • 1 bottle of Nyetimber at a selling price of £58

Tommy Sheppard MP has blasted the findings, which he believes demonstrates how “out of touch” the Westminster system is with working families.

Commenting, Tommy Sheppard MP said:

“Once again, we can see how out of touch the Westminster system is with working families across the UK.

“Despite Westminster crashing the economy and condemning millions of families to further levels of poverty, unelected members of the House of Lords continue to guzzle champagne by the bucket-load.

“This will rightly aggrieve voters and push the cause for abolishment of this outdated institution.

“Fundamentally though, the entire Westminster system is not fit for purpose.

“It is riddled with corruption and sleaze stretching from the House of Commons all the way to the House of Lords.

“The sooner Scotland leaves this broken system and embarks on a new, independent future, the better.”
