Ring of the Lords

house of lords lobbying
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?

This has being going on for years, I wonder why only now it has been 'noticed'. It is such a farce that criminals are in it too! I think the House of Lords needs an independent Watchdog.

I love that photo you put up on your blog. Ker-Ching. It creases me up. The Ring of the Lords...! Classic.
