Losing senior figures
The House has just lost two senior members with the deaths of Lord Richard and Lord Crickhowell.
Lord Richard (Ivor Richard) was a former Labour MP and UK Ambassador the UN.
In the Lords, he served as Leader of the House after Labour’s return to power in 1997.
He also chaired the Richard Commission on Welsh Devolution
and the Joint Committee on the Draft House of Lords Reform Bill in 2011-12, on which I served.
Lord Crickhowell (Nicholas Edwards) was a Conservative MP and a long-serving Secretary of States for Wales,
prior to his elevation to the peerage.
Both were active in the Lords.
Lord Crickhowell could be forthright in his speeches
and I always found it useful to have him on the same side as me in any debate,
which was virtually always the case,
including in seeking evidence-based drugs policy.
They will both be very much missed.

Grievous to also have to note, Lord Norton and Readers,
that we are “iatrogenicly” losing far more than senior figures.
We are “losing this Planet Earth and our whole Human Civilisation.

We are losing far more than is generally realised, according to those in the know.
And, listening to our world journalists and news makers, we are well into the NWO agenda.
How it is accepted in the way it is, leaves me very bewildered.
It reminds me of stories we read of concentration camps.
How hundreds were killed by very few guards who ruled with little or no obstacle.
Which has been confirmed by Western leaders for many years.

As an addition to the above post, have you seen, heards of or know anything about Agenda 2030?
Here is an interpretation of that agenda. Which has to be noted, appears to be well under way.

all three of those YouTube spoken articles
“Self-Concealing-Over-Empowered, Inhuman, and Obscenely-Over-Rich-Micro-Elite” factor,
and ‘soap-box rabble-rousingly hype-it-up’
as being the lone autocratic destroyer of
“our Rights and Freedoms” –
but exclude other vital factors
such as our collectively-highly possible peaceful-revolution,
and constructively-guidable by advances in Knowledge and Know-How, plentifully published already
but are both seriously-completely neglected by us People
mindlessly-suppressed by the adversarially-destructive,
hierarchically-repressive civilisation and its
Directive Civil Services
“Protected Private Market-Economic Sectors’
‘neo-class-distinctional pyramid’ ”
we are all, as well as senior-figures, being “lost”.
