Tony Blair has become the only British Prime Minister in modern times not to publish a Resignation Honours list. It is suggested that this was done to offset the Cash for Peerages scandal.

Thank you!

What is the going rate for a Peerage these days?
Hopefully the cosmos is not trying to reverse the charges.
