Sir, For many years British prime ministers have packed the Upper House with their cronies, and MPs have resisted all proposals to reform it by election of its members. It is time they stopped referring to “the unelected House of Lords” when they dislike its actions. They have no right to complain about a situation that is of their own making.
Despite the deplorable method of appointment, their Lordships generally act in a wise and thoughtful manner.
