The War Lords of Sleez

It's been reported in the Mirror that three retired military chiefs are being investigated by a "sleaze watchdog". It is alleged that the three War Lords used a House of Lords debate to demand more spending on the Armed Forces without having declared their own financial interests in the armaments industry.

This possibly compromising situation was noted in the article "Cui bono?" which appeared in the Defence of the Realm blog back in November.
