The House of Lords should become a second chamber where just two-thirds of members are elected
There has been an internal cabinet committee battle over whether to support a wholly elected second chamber, or to leave an appointed element.
The gossip is that M\’Lord Mandy of Fop has been insisting on retention of an appointed element. I wonder why?
They would be elected from 12 electoral regions, with nine in England and the other three in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The regions would be drawn up by May 2012.
Don\’t be so bloody stupid. They\’ll be the same regions as are used for the euro-elections.
and members elected by an open list, proportional system designed
Can anyone decipher that for me? Just what are they proposing as the electoral system? Euro election stuff again?
If so I\’ll have to keep my UKIP membership going I think…..
