In the face of yet another House of Lords scandal, we urgently need real reform of the upper chamber.
Our legislators should be chosen and thrown out by the people, not appointed by politicians.
Attempts to control the size of the House of Lords via restraint in appointments has failed, the institution needs a root and branch reform.
We can’t let them continue to shape the laws of everyday people any longer.
