"There is only one reform of the House of Lords that is required and that is to reverse the last reform when a majority of hereditary peers were disgracefully removed, breaking an 800 year tradition. We shouldn't be breaking with tradition, but we should do our utmost to ensure that they continue! Its time to bring back the old hereditary peers and make it less easier for the Prime Minister to manipulate the Lords by appointing his set of cronies! Bring back the hereditary peers!"
--Annesley Abercorn, "Should the House of Lords be elected?", BBC news, Talking Points, February 6, 2003
