    Except they won’t: they will reform the pointless second chamber, to ensure a good supply of jobs at the parties’ disposal: I’d expect some sort of election via list system.

    What next? Abolish public schools charity status*, meaning they’d have to pay tax!
    *giving them £700m tax free a year.

    Of the two, the House of Lords is the more truly democratic chamber. MP’s are smarter, more ambitious and gifted with a greater degree of low-cunning than the average man-in-the-street. Now hereditary peers, selected as they are by mere accident of birth, will be far more representative of the general population in that they will include a few clever-dicks but a far larger number of blithering idiots.
