DRUNK AS A LORD: ‘Lord of Northwood’ suspended for drunken harassment

 Published on: 21st June 2024   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A life peer who was named ‘Lord of Northwood’ upon his introduction was suspended from the House of Lords after harassing two women while drunk.

Kulveer Singh Ranger, titled the Lord Ranger of Northwood, also resigned from the Conservative Party whip after being given a three-week suspension in mid-May.

Lord Ranger first took his seat in the Lords in July of last year, having been nominated for a peerage in former Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s resignation honours list.

He is a successful communications executive, who also became Mr Johnson’s director of transport policy during his first term as Mayor of London.

However, the House of Lords Conduct Committee recently found that in January 2024, Lord Ranger approached a group of people in the Commons Strangers’ Bar and made inappropriate comments to a woman in the group while visibly drunk.

Around 30 to 60 minutes later, he rejoined the group and again engaged in conversation with them, this time acting aggressively.

Lord Ranger proceeded to shout and swear at two women, calling one of them “f***ing useless”, and invaded their personal space in a way they found threatening. This was corroborated by witnesses.

The committee found that Lord Ranger had breached the institution’s code of conduct on bullying and harassment. They recommended he be suspended from the Lords for three weeks and from the Lords bars for a year.
