occasional musings on politics, culture and life in general from an american in exile
I frankly have no problem whatsoever with an unelected House of Lords. My observation is that it's one of the few things that's prevented Commons and the Government from turning this into a complete police state.I fail to see how extending the worthless system of campaigning and elections that passes for democracy in the West to the Lords could possibly improve it.
Well that certainly is an argument to be considered. However the fact that the esteemed upper house is full of Mandelsons and Ascrofts argues the other way.
Sure, but look at the Other Place. Fat lot of good 'democracy's' done for anyone there.
