The House of Lordzzzzz

Far be it from me to question the oratorical brilliance of the House of Lords, but Liberal Democrat peers occasionally struggle to keep their own side awake.

Lord Thomas of Gresford is busy explaining the party's position of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill - it's the fifth day of the committee stage and he's on Amendment 120.

Sadly, this excitment has proved too much for one Lib Dem peeress sitting directly behind him. I won't name and shame her, but she does give every appearance of having been asleep for the last five minutes of Lord Thomas's speech.
