The Lords have no real power save to stall bills for a couple of sessions and quite frankly many of them are far more decent than the useless prats that get elected in the Commons. The Commons as is is a borish postribolo of ayesayers and bench warmers that have little else to do but write letters home and go into rut during question time.
GB is nothing more than an electoral dictatorship, a nation run by a first lord of the treasury with his old cronies while a fistful of vain arses pride themselves in being perfectly useless members of the good Queen's Cabinet.
Not to say that British politics is all very lively and puts on a good show for the media but once you've gotten past the cheesy grins it boils down to an amazing amount of power concentrated in very few mittens.
Sortition of course is never going to happen.
