Right Honourable

Does it matter that Alex Salmond, now partially funded by Russia, is a Privy Counsellor - for life ? He was appointed in 2007. Counsellors' functions include signing off Royal Charters - e.g.that which gives the BBC its existence.

Full meetings of the 600-odd councillors are only called on the accession of a new sovereign, or when an unmarried sovereign plans to get hitched.

I can't find any record of a Counsellor being sacked - Profumo, Stonehouse and Aitken offered their resignations.
