Wifer lifer

Why on earth is Ian Paisley's wife to be given a life peerage? What has she done to deserve it? She seems a nice enough lady, but what characteristics mark her out as someone Britain urgently needs to be up there shaping its legislation? Since a short spell as a local councillor in the 60's she's been - well - making tea and buns mostly.
Just goes to show how outmoded the UK parliamentary system is. Or maybe Tony Blair just reckons he needs someone to keep a load of ageing hotheads under control ... 
Any way up, look on the bright side - it could've been Willie McCrea.
