    Now Labour wants Lords Reform

    Blair & Co have been holding back on Lords Reform for some time now, but as ePolitix reports, "consensus" is now being sought on the issue. The timing of this seems interesting to me, in light of the fact that the Lords have blocked several pieces of Blairite legislation:

    The second chamber is currently composed of mostly appointed life peers, law lords, Church of England bishops and a group of 92 hereditary peers, following the removal of over 600 dukes, earls, marquesses and barons by the government in 1999. Further changes were expected to be made in Labour's second term but plans were shelved after MPs could not agree the best way forward. Since then there has been no further reform, but scores of life peers have been appointed.
