Imagine a Peer holding such a position in the House of Lords behaving in such a scandalous way?
The Labour party suspended his membership of the party Monday ahead of presumably an internal investigation.
Footage also showed Sewel criticising leading political figures cross-party. Tony Blair, David Cameron and Boris Johnson were verbally attacked but what he said will be nothing new to the electorate.
Under new rules which only came into force July 16 Sewel could be forced to quit the House of Lords.
Lord rules apparently say that members must "always act on their personal honour" which will be hilarious to many members of the general public who have followed various political scandals in the UK.
As the House of Lords has been stuffed to the rafters by the Tory coalition and now the Tory government that could certainly thin the number down and save taxpayers money but will it be cross party?
But perhaps what is galling is UK PM David Cameron who has appeared on mainstream television news in the UK to add his opinion while seeking to gain a political advantage.
Perhaps whoever was in power would do the same but Cameron has a poor track record in helping the survivors of sex and child abuse with alleged links to Westminster to receive justice.
He has previously called the survivors and others conspiracy theorists; he denied along with his Ministers that there were documents showing abuse links to high office and even wanted to move on from "paedo ring with Homicide links to Westminster."
Sewel's prostitute party at least looked to have included only consenting adults but that could prove false in time.
But in order to throw stones Westminster needs to clean up its act past, present and for the future.
Perhaps the timing of the Sewel sting is suspicious?
Last week as parliament broke for a long summer recess documents pertaining to Westminster linked sex and child abuse, missing believed lost or by some non-existent, were miraculously found.
Will Mr Cameron join us all in condemning the lack of ministerial commitment to the CSA Inquiry and the endless delays?
As British people question the cause of such delays in comparison to celebrities accused of sex and child abuse we wonder just how rotten Westminster is.
As for Sewel-he has been caught in the act and the sooner he departs Westminster the better.
Sewel has quit. US publication CNN reports "Lord Sewel, a deputy speaker in the upper house of the UK Parliament, has resigned from his post after video emerged that allegedly showed him snorting cocaine in the company of prostitutes." In the UK MPs call the House of Lords the 'other place' and the general public often call it something else but never the 'upper' house. That implies it is somehow better or more powerful but it is full of unelected people.
Sewel announced early Tuesday he is stepping down from the House of Lords with immediate effect.
