Imagine for a moment that we had a real conservative government. Not just a majority government with the current Conservative lot, but a government that was genuinely conservative. Imagine if that government looked at the damage New Labour had done to the country and decided enough was enough, and it was time to undo as much of that damage as possible. One obvious piece of damage they could undo would be Blair’s shameful and unnecessary constitutional vandalism in the form of the House of Lords Act 1999, thus restoring Britain’s hereditary peers to their rightful place in the upper chamber.
Yes, much more sensible than the kind of Lords Reform being pushed by the Coalition government.
