    Thatís why us baby boomers get pissed off when we see our once great country giving it all away to foreigners.

    Not just from these though because that'd be unfair. It wouldn't surprise me if that was turned round if Brexit happens Saw.

    Yes those are the recommendations from a House of Lords committee report.

    A report generated by a set of unelected duffers that actively tried to block brexit.

    I would however accept the proposals if they also scrapped the House of Lords daily attendance allowance and ended the duty free bar perk they have there.

    Chances of that happening?

    About the same as us winning the Premiership and Champions League

    As long as any reduction is means tested and the poor don't lose out then fair enough.
