Re: Frexit

Nigel Farage has said he would push for the abolition of HofL, Boris will never consider it.

In four years' time I shall vote for Nigel.

By then, hopefully, we should be out of the EU and we really should be putting the country to rights.

Democratically elected judges as well.

A public veto to challenge choices made for a peerage. Someone has tried.

That didn't last long!

I wonder who ordered that petition to be closed. We're leaving the dictatorial EU, but are we becoming a dictatorial 'democracy'?

I don't agree with the Grauniad's politics, but they are absolutely right.

I believe the unelected, senatorial model for a second chamber, as in Ireland, is in principle sound. Some mix of outstanding or significant citizens, chosen by occupation or location, would bring a different voice and viewpoint to hyper-metropolitan Westminster. Retired politicians can retreat to their clubs. Fresh voices, fresh faces, fresh outlooks are needed. The case for a House of Lords, or a house of somethings, remains convincing.

Re: Frexit

Yes, a second chamber is a good thing, a necessary thing.
It's just how it is composed that's important.

And 800+ is ridiculously large.
