House of Lords reform

I’m sure you’ll all be fascinated to know that I’ve just signed up for this:

“I will ‘blog for victory’ on the 10th of August by writing a post about the need for House of Lords reform, and link to the Elect the Lords campaign website but only if 20 other bloggers will too.”

Although having done so it’s entirely possible that on the day I may end up arguing that we need to go back to a hereditary upper chamber and that democracy’s overrated. Despite having had to write a briefing paper on Lord’s reform when I was working at the Commons I still don’t really have an opinion. All I do know is that the current system is a piss-poor worst of both worlds scenario.
