Any Conservative opposition will be painted as ‘those Tory toffs who think Lords are better than anyone’. Pat March 14, 2010 at 12:55 pm To which the Tories will simply reply- thats what you said in ’97, and all you actually did was stuff the Lords with your cronies. Add in some proposals of their own- and it’ll carry no weight at all. I rather fear we’ll be stuck with a party list system, and holding the elections to coincide with a commons election will accentuate the dominance of unelected party hierarchies.
