    The Bundesrat isn't directly elected either.

    The Bundesrat is not stuffed with unelected pensioners who cannot ever be kicked out though.

    There is absolutely zero justification for unaccountable lifetime membership of an Upper House.

    Can't wait for that miserable old bitch to put pen to paper. I hope it sticks in her throat.

    Oh, I see she's claiming this as some sort of protest. Would be more effective if her seat wasn't almost certainly going to fall to Labour in 2015.

    Is that just for England and Wales? I already get enough grief from bridezillas getting their wedding stuff printed, I'll need a firm preparation period to get ready to deal with the GAY-ZILLAS :o

    8 Tories

    7 SNP

    3 Labour

    And to think they're even uglier on the inside. The Tory on the bottom right looks like a creature from an Aardman animation.

    105 to 18 that's a LANDSLIDE if their ever was one. At least it wasn't the awful labour it was in France last year :manson:

    Thankfully John Mason's wrecking amendment was soundly voted down too. I didn't see the debate but people were saying it was very spiriting and largely positive, with the Green Party's Patrick Harvie as clear MVP.

    "The consequences of this bill? Well, with a little bit of luck some people will live happily ever after. And we will get cake!"

    Aren't the Northern Irish having a referendum? Tragic.

    From the brief new snippets I've seen - EXACTLY what you'd imagine. The LAST part of the UK that should have a referendum on it!
