Lords "reform" at 11
On the occasion of the 11th anniversary of New Labour's expulsion of all but 92 hereditary peers from the House of Lords, an unforgivable act of constitutional vandalism, Sean Gabb's 1998 defence of the peers' role in Britain's ancient constitution is worth a re-read. Too bad the so-called "Conservatives" currently governing the UK, who won't even try to reverse this travesty, don't care. A documentary on "The Lords' Tale" is available at YouTube.
