Whilst, the is a good analysis, I am not sure that I am entirely comfortable agree with the conclusions, including:
The House of Lords is a closed political world in an increasingly open society in which citizen democracy and grassroots activism flourish, not least through social media. There is a danger that it will start to feel increasingly archaic in a world in which – as at the last European elections – the three main parties attracted around only half the votes cast. If Cameron is true to his radicalising roots about releasing power from the centre and to the people, then he has to support reform of the House of Lords.
What do you think?
