Consumer champion Martin Lewis reveals he was recently TURNED DOWN for a seat in the House of Lords


Martin Lewis has revealed how he was recently turned down for a seat in the House of Lords because he was ‘honest’ in an interview for a peerage.

The 50-year-old, the founder of the Money Saving Expert website, spoke of how his bid to become a crossbench peer was rejected ‘a couple of weeks ago’ by an appointments panel.

The consumer champion blamed his rejection on him being ‘open and transparent’ about how much time he would be able to devote to being in Parliament.

Mr Lewis described how, with a nine-year-old daughter, he would struggle with the mid-week evening sittings of the Lords.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Political Thinking with Nick Robinson programme, Mr Lewis said it was the second time he had been rejected for a seat in the Lords as an independent peer.
