She has not been convicted of any criminal offence, and yet we still have a convicted perjurer that has kept his title and is allowed to sit and comment in the House of Lords.

It niggled me and many thousands more, when Lester Piggott lost his title. I think the only person who wasn't niggled was Lester Piggott himself.

Lester Piggot was stripped of his OBE because he committed a serious criminal offence - a £3 million tax fraud.
