Dr George M.P. Bailey

If those in power and elected positions in this country argue that our society must be fit for the 21st century, then both houses are indeed in need of radical reform.

Fully elected houses should be a must, and not an option; after all such people at the time of elections or reform debates, argue that they wish to serve the nation. If this is true, then they must be realise that we the electorate, want them to be held to account.

To be more powerful, democratic and legitimate, MPs and the elected Lords (if that is what they will be) will have to be able to be free from pressure when voting in the houses. A process that needs changing whatever the situaion!

In anticipation
