Ring of the Lords
Thanks to Beau Bo D'Or for this!
The Lords scandal is just another example of the sheer stupidity of the concept of a House of Lords. I almost have more time for the hereditary peers, at least they haven't been placed there strategically or as a favour, but either way this week's scandal is yet another reason to scrap the Lords and replace it with a fully elected upper house.
How many countries could get away with calling themselves democratic with a system like ours?
