House of Lords is a glorified club

The British people will no doubt rejoice to see that 45 new members have been appointed to the Lords.

It would be interesting to know the background of these new recruits.

One has to assume that out of the 800 members, there will be a percentage who are satisfactory and worthy of the role.

The Lords, in my opinion, is just a glorified club, a meeting place which pays well, with a first-class subsidised canteen.

Many people would like to see the Lords abolished and replaced by elected men and women, but this will never be accomplished.
