Easy Solution to Ermine Concern

The 792 peers have decreed that the upper chamber is too full. They have asked the PM not to ennoble anyone else as they have run out of  coat hooks and headed paper. Just a fraction of this 792 are active working peers who devote themselves to their constitutional role as scrutineers. There is no denying there is plenty of deadwood and corrupt expenses fiddlers who got away with crimes far worse that Lord Taylor. It’s a job for life though.

Here’s a simple idea, if there are too many Lords theen there should be a system in place that can see the bad ones kicked out, and the good ones rewarded, by keeping their jobs. New people could put themselves forward and the public could support them. Think there’s a name for this process… Ah yes, an elected chamber.
