Finally, you may wonder why it is that a member of the Upper House of the United Kingdom legislature, wholly unconnected with and unpaid by the corporation that is the victim of your lamentable letter, should take the unusual step of calling upon you as members of the Upper House of the United States legislature either to withdraw what you have written or resign your sinecures.
But Viscount Monckton of Brenchley is not a member of the Upper House of the United Kingdom legislature. You can check the list yourself.
If you are wondering why Lord Monckton is not a member of the House of Lords, it’s because he is a hereditary peer and since 1999 only 92 hereditary peers (elected from all hereditary peers) get to be members. Monckton’s father, the second Viscount Monckton of Brenchley stood for election on the muzzles-for-moggies platform:
Action against cruelty to animals, particularly fishing with rods. All cats to be muzzled outside to stop the agonising torture of mice and small birds.
But, alas, he was not elected.
The current Lord Monckton stood for election this year but unfortunately did not get any votes.
