Watch the moment former Gedling MP Vernon Coaker entered the House of Lords to be made a lifelong peer earlier today (March 22).

The former MP was officially introduced to the House as ‘Baron Coaker of Gedling in the County of Nottinghamshire’ during the ceremony just after 1pm today.

He swore: “I, Vernon Lord Coaker do swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs, and successors, according to law, so help me God.”

He was recommended for a peerage by current Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.

Mr Coaker was the Labour MP for Gedling for 22 years. He lost his seat in the last election to Conservative MP Tom Randall.


  1. Seriously, an MP who betrayed the will of his constituents, the will of the people and voted on what HE wanted and not his constituents and this is how he’s rewarded. Treacherous turncoat more like. MP’s are there to serve the will of their constituents, the very same as voted him into the position but then milked the gravy train and ignored them. Yep, I’ll stick with treacherous turncoat. Don’t bother praising him to me your wasting your time. You can be as honest as the day is long till you betray your voters and the past stands for nothing. You have to start clean and end clean. Well he can take solace knowing in the Lords he can continue to betray the people and carry on milking it.
