Cameron has already appointed 117 new peers, a third of the number in all Labour\’s years. Half are former MPs or councillors, a further fifth special advisers or party staff.
Yup. Because Cameron was PM when all those Labour MPs, SpAds, Ministers and Brown\’s resignation list got their coronets.
The end of a government always produces a surge in ennoblements but they are from that previous government even if the bloke doing the actual ennobling is the new PM.
Why not abolish it? Why bother with electing a new void? Lords buffoonery has to end.
Because we most certainly don\’t want a unicameral legislature. Who knows what lunacies would be enacted without a revising chamber?
And quite seriously, a country without a written constitution really doesn\’t want to give MPs the poower to enact anything at all that crosses their pea brains.
