Just what we need, more Lords...
David Cameron has ennobled 117 people in less than 1 year creating more peers, more quickly than any of his post-war predecessors as reported by the BBC here - he must have owed a lot of favours ! There are now 792 Lords, all totally unelected of course ! This is all a bit ironic considering the coalition government is committed to reducing the size of the House of Commons from 650 to 600 MPs at the next election and go on about generally reducing the size of government. All seems a bit hypocritical and elitist to me but what would you expect from the Tories ?
