House of Lords Reform: depressing Bill published

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / House of Lords Reform: depressing Bill published
You couldn't really make it up but Nick Clegg did - the world and his dog (except for those wretched right wing Tory MPs) want an elected chamber. What was promised? An 80% elected and 20% nominated chamber (to keep the politicians happy so they can go on nominating their friends) this really the best we can do??

Then there were the numbers of members and elected for 15 years how nuts is that?

If we cannot have one overarching Senate with four lower but equal parliaments representing our four nations then at least let's have one Senate with two members elected from each unitary or county authority rather than Clegg's fudge.
