Due to David Cameron’s resignation honours being full of members of the Remainiac Chumocracy and Comrade Jezbollah putting forward Shami Chakrabarti’s name for a peerage as a thank you present for sweeping Labour’s ingrained anti-semitism under the carpet, Theresa May plans to have the vast majority in the House of Lords to be “elected by the many” rather than “selected by the few”.
Here the Sun says
Mrs May has previously demanded an end to the current system which lets party bosses hand peerages to pals and rich donors.
In a sign of her passion for change, she declared: “As democrats, we cannot support proposals that continue the principle of patronage.”
And she added: “Reform should create an upper Chamber that is capable of challenging and revising Government policy, that is democratic and accountable, and that is expert and independent.”
Years of dithering over reform have seen the House of Lords second-biggest political chamber in the world behind China’s People’s Congress.
Having the House of Lords being the second-biggest political chamber in the world behind China’s People’s Congress is ridiculous.
