Should Hereditary Peerage be bought back to the House of Lords?

It seems to be clear that the current system doesn't work and an elected one would always be in favour of one party (most likely Labour) so it seems a logical move.

    What on earth makes you think that someone whose only claim is that one of their ancestors was either more violent than anyone else around or sucked up to the King at the right time to be made an hereditary peer?

    The only way forward would be to have an elected upper house based on majority voting.

    You may have a point there, although I am not in favour of the house of Lords in its present form.

    Just look at the so called "Lords". Who the bloody hell are some of them? Where do they actually come from?

    Ex Speaker and crook Martin, a Lord? Kinnock a joker in the pack and his wife, Lord and Lady, for doing what?

    Mandelson, a Lord, the "judas" in the Cabinet and never an elected member!

    There are untold number of individuals who by virtue of having obtained their title are drawing expenses just for putting their heads through the doorway.They are no more than leeches, as though we haven't got enough getting rich on the back of the poor tax payer.

    It worked a damn site better for centuries then what it does now. Then again they dared to stand up to Blair so he destroyed them. You never had the sleaze before as you do now. They were called honourable gentlemen for a reason. Not the rent a mob they are now.

    Yes and then move the voting age for women back up to 30. Should probably bring back the cane and re-open the poor houses while we're at it.

    It is only a matter of time before the House of Lords is abolished.
