"Cash for Peerages" dossier

The Telegraph is reporting that the British branch of the corruption watchdog Transparency International (TI) has submmited a dossier to Inspector Knacker. The dossier is based on the available knowledge about the "Lloyd George II" saga and lists eight criminal offences it believes have been committed above and beyond offences under the 1925 Honours Act. The offences are bribery, two separate counts of obtaining a pecuniary advantage by deception, false accounting, conspiracy to defraud, fraudulent trading, and offences under the Competition and Enterprise Act.

Full report here.

Ever wondered what the reserve bid for a peerage is ? Can you get outbid or are there lots to go round ?
