Pickles and Lilley among former Tory ministers to get peerages http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44167066
Lilley can do less damage in the Lords.
Pickles and Lilley! Why am I suddenly reminded of that Great British variant on South-Asian sour pickle, Piccalilli? Once tasted, never forgotten, rarely repeated, but goes quite well with corned beef and baked potato. It is on sale on our local English Shop, alongside Bisto Gravy Granules and Ryvita. And Tesco Cornish Clotted Cream .
