Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am not defending the thing, just saying that if I could change something, my very very first would be to replace first-past-the-post with proportionality in parliament. That would bring real democracy to the UK, more than anything else.

In light of this, I think the reformed proposed is a good thing. Having one chamber elected by proportional representation should over time increase the pressure on reform of the commons.
