Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Throwing out the bishops and replacing with a selection of ordinary folk chosen by sortition would make life interesting.

Of course members of the upper house are supposed to be educated and literate and all. But if the bishops can get a few seats, there's no reason why ordinary people couldn't be co-opted for a few years and paid a decent salary while they're sitting.
