I am looking ahead to 2017 and the possibility of extended membership of the EU.
The probability is that our sitting members in Parliament will be almost redundant, simply because most laws emanate from Brussels.
Similarly affected will be the House of Lords.
The poor darlings who have, in my opinion, had such a cosy life on the benches will then have to venture into the real world and earn a living the hard way.
A “not before time” total shock for some, in my view, but what I consider to be a life of complacency, is a two-edged sword for others.
