Well done Alexander, Baker, Cable, Laws and Hughes

The Guardian reports:

Four senior Liberal Democrat politicians defeated in the general election, including former business secretary Vince Cable, have turned down offers of a peerage from Nick Clegg in the dissolution honours list. It is understood that David Laws, the former education minister, Simon Hughes, the former justice minister, and former Treasury chief secretary Danny Alexander have also decided to reject a chance to sit in the House of Lords…

Norman Baker, the former MP for Lewes and another former minister, has also let it be known that he is not interested in a peerage.
