SCRAP THE HOUSE OF LORDS.


Allegations of corruption by members of the House of  Lords should be examined by the police, no matter who is accused or from which party they supposedly represent. The House of Lords itself remains an anachronism a house stuffed by patronage and privilege. We are now in the 21st century an we should have an elected Senate of say 120 members with fixed terms of service and clearly defined job specification, accountability and appraisal. The House of Lords can’t be reformed it needs replacing completely.

Why on a Labour government should be engaged in promoting individuals to the House and tinkering with reform  is unbelievable this institution must go and be replaced with an elected Senate.

    An instant doable reform might simply be drug testing in the work place. Afterall the politicians are continually telling us how important their work is.

    I would love to see that in our Australian parliament.
