Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Replacing the Lords with another chamber elected on similar rules and on a similar calendar to the lower house is just a waste.

Were it not difficult how this could facilitate accomplishment of any Lib-Dem government's goal, as the prospect of such a government is so remote, I might think that might be the goal. It would make more likely that a party with a large mandate could push through anything. Sounds like so many 'reform' efforts over the last two decades.
