No work today, due to the bad weather, so I need something to occupy my time… and that something will be Jack Straw’s White Paper on reform of the House of Lords.
I’m not intending to rake over the mechanics of the reforms, rather I’ve been looking through the White Paper to see not what Jack’s proposing – that’s already well known – but what arguments he’s putting up in support of the proposals…
And thus far, what I’ve seen suggests that things are going to get a little messy.
So sit back and relax. I’ve got a new category set up especially for Jack and in a little while I’ll have him safely strapped to the dissecting table, the scalpels will be nicely sharpened, and I will set about flaying him alive.
