So, just updating myself on Lords reform progress in my day off politics (not sure how that works...) and I see that I had missed the rumours that a draft bill to reform the Lords is due out next month.
According to the Daily Hate Mail Clegg has backed down on a 100% elected upper house and will go for 80% so that he can leave the bishops (and possible law lords plus a few cronies) in there.
From the Mail:
A committee of both Houses will then consider the legislation and report next year. But there are still some issues that have yet been resolved such as whether the elections will take place on the constituency boundaries used for European elections or new ones drawn around cities and groups of counties.
