If it aint broke, don't fix it

Apparently 80% of the House of Lords should be elected, with that 80% being referred to as Senators. Why? What is so wrong with the House of Lords that we have to so radically alter it? I may be wrong, but it has always been my opinion that being a conservative was, at least to a small degree, about conserving things (in particular, things that work perfectly well, and have worked perfectly well for centuries).

Perhaps I am wrong though. Maybe we should ditch the titles ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ and replace them with ‘The Peoples’ Champion’. In fact, perhaps The Peoples’ Champion should be elected through a Pop Idol style process.

I think I may be on to something.
