    Have a look at the House of Lords…
    More than 100 peers claim £50k expenses. :rolleyes:

    Please remind me again: What is that they do exactly?

    I just love how the Commons considers itself so superiour that it can vote the Peers out of existence. Sort of like the US House of Representatives voting to abolish the Senate.

    Not really....House and Senate are both elected....the house of Lords not so much.

    Honestly, I don't get why they are still there...they don't do all that much...certainly not worth the money they seem to be spending.(this is just one American's perspective)
