Lords Vote Result

Now there is a relatively pleasant surprise!
I try not to have too many illusions in our current deeply flawed representative democracy in Britain, but at least representatives who are elected are an advance on feudalist flunkies and crony appointees.
If the agenda now moves on to getting rid of the other vestiges of feudal/church power in this country like the monarchy and the established church we might be edging towards a state of political development equivalent to other capitalist states, instead of being saddled with the remnants of a partially reversed bourgeois revolution.
However, the signs are that the flunkies, cronies and medieval superstitious relics will not go down without a fight........
