Tory view on House of Lords is 'quite unbelievable', says town MP
2:43pm Tuesday 30th October 2012 in News
COLCHESTER MP Sir Bob Russell has accused Conservatives of hypocrisy after failing to support plans to reform the House of Lords.
Liberal Democrat Sir Bob said at a time when the UK was trying to promote democracy around the world, it is “quite unbelievable” Tories are not backing Liberal Democrats’ proposals to make the House of Lords entirely elected.
“At a time when in Britain we are arguing for democracy around the world, we are not getting our own house in order,” Sir Bob said.
