Bearing in mind that the main focus of UKIPs message is "unelected European Commissioners shouldn't have a say on our laws", it is somewhat ironic that they are celebrating the recruitment of two unelected Peers to their ranks. Afterall, if UKIP dislikes unelected law-makers so much it would be supporting current reforms to create an elected second chamber.

Such news is made all the more hypocritical with the understanding that members of the House of Lords have far more influence over the actual text of our laws than European Commissioners, who merely have the power to propose.
