    Think they’re just being pragmatic, can’t win this battle right now, so a strategic retreat to continue the war.

    Is there not there something ironic about the Liberal Democrats dropping support for the constituency boundary review which is aimed at improving democracy be even-ing up how many voters it takes to elect an MP?

    I support an elected House of Lords because I believe that those who make the laws of the land should be elected by those who have to obey the laws of the land. Clegg

    That would be the House of Commons, Nick. The “Lords” scrutinises and amends the gibberish that comes out of the elected House.

    An unelected House of Lords flies in the face of democratic principles and public opinion. Clegg

    Wind. An elected Lords would become a second house of amoral PR-types and lawyers.

    The Lords is a mess, but Clegg’s way is completely wrong IMO. [and I’m an ardent Liberal BTW]

    The boundary changes are Gerrymandering.

    I heartily agree – the idea that it should take approximately the same number of people to elect each MP is blatantly anti-Labour err, democratic.

    New boundaries were pretty stupid though. I live just outside Pateley Bridge, I was going to be in the constituency of North Leeds?!?!?
