House of Lords Reform

  • Reform the House of Lords
  • Elected via Proportional Representation
  • Accountable Second House


The House of Lords is in no way representative of the country. We need a second chamber that more accurately represents and reflects the views of the nation in order to provide checks and balances for the House of Commons.

Lords are appointed by Prime Ministers & leaders of the opposition, many in position specifically to attempt to swing the balance in their favour so the Lords will vote through their policies.

We should abolish the Lords and replace it with an elected second chamber using Proportional Representation (PR) to create a house that really represents the nation.


There are many pro’s and con’s surrounding PR, It is slowing dawning on us that Two-party politics is long dead and the public have lost faith in either party to govern sensibly, fairly and correctly.


PR, where the House of Lords is concerned would create a representative house that truly reflects the nation.


Parliament needs a second house and the people need it to represent them rather than representing the House of Commons.


Lords are currently Lords for life meaning that when our Government changes we appoint more and more new Lords to change the balance of power within it.


Lords are appointed for services to the Government of the day. The last 23 Tory party treasurers have all gone onto the House of Lords. In may well be a coincidence, or it might be related to the fact that you can become the party treasurer if you are kind enough to ‘donate’ £3 million or more to the party.


Is this really how we want our Government to run in the 21st century?


Should Knighthoods be used as a gift in exchange for political favours?


You have a choice; you can stand on the sidelines & moan about everything that is wrong with the Country & the dire state of current politics, or, you can get involved and help us to make the changes we all need....
