Jeffrey Archer to be stripped of peerage


http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...ow?msid=190249
do someone still think that his new(i.e,yet to be released)pulp fictions are going to be bestsellers again??and how about this-if your read Archer's novels,do you have any clue that the author is one among the biggest liars the world has seen??

HAHAHA i know, i laughed myself to sleep last night.. Sorry, i'm not big on Schadenfreude generally, but i can make one exception for Jeff... and no, i don't rate him- as an author or a human being.

sure he's a berk, but I don't see why he should be mocked so much for simply coming out unfavourably from an arbitrary review. It's not like "ooh let's strip jeffs title" it's "let's remove titles from all peers with criminal records"

It is BBC's reporting about the new law.kewp,see how many times Archer's name appears in it.Why does these people give much publicity to Archer is going to lose peerage?Also,how many other people with peerage is having criminal records??any idea??i guess the number will be very low.These all are pointing against ARCHER.
bye the bye,Archer was my favorite novelist still a couple of years back.Born liar and Fraud.I guess a film will be made on Archer after his death.

I'm not though, I just find it funny when people try and lie their way out of deserved trouble and it comes round and bites them in the arse. It's a little solid justice in uncertain times.
Still you're absolutely right. The bill isn't, and certainly shouldn't be specifically targetting him, nor should it be reported as such.
