Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The term lengths are a sticking point for many people.  I personally prefer long terms for the less-powerful house of a bicameral parliamentary system, just to insulate it from general election politics.  I wouldn't expend much effort defending them, though.
