Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can see the point of having spiritual lords. However, the "established church" thing is getting a bit old. I suggest that religious representation should be based on census declarations. What would that give : 4 or 5 C of E, a catholic, a couple of moslems, one or thw assorted protestants (but the methodists, presbyterians etc would never agree among themselves who should represent them), a rastafarian perhaps, and what about the atheists? Sortition?

Muslims: 2.4%. No way.

C of E 19.9%, Roman Catholics 8.6%, so probably one more than you suggest

Presbyterian/Church of Scotland. In principle none, but the Scots won't like it.

No religion: 50.7%, so they deserve a lot. How about Dawkins as life peer?
