The House of Lords *JBEXF*.
Amen to that.
It should be left alone and not meddled
with. Making it all-elected will give it far too much clout and even more self-importance - the Commons should always have the last say - but not before a hell of a struggle.
Absolutely. On paper, the House of Lords may seem like a ludicrous way to run a democracy, but in reality, time and time again through my adult life, their Lord- and Ladyships have shown to be far more in touch with the general prevailing opinion that our supposedly democratically-elected house.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it - except, of course, that from the perspective of a venal government of any colour, their actions show that it Is broke.
I went to the polling station, but the only option
given was to vote for one or other of the politicians.
