Use this example to show how Lords reform has withered and left incomplete. The prime minister has rejected proposals to reduce the size of the Lords, one of the most bloated second chambers in the world with 800 members. Critics say that May plans to create new peers to help shore up government support in the upper house, which threatens to significantly amend Brexit legislation (an example in itself of the Lords providing meaningful oversight). Labour and the Liberal Democrats are now advocating an elected second chamber. Here we can see how the political parties are taking different stances on constitutional reform. The Tories are taking a traditionally right wing, small ‘c’ conservative approach of preserving tradition, while Labour and Liberal Democrats are conforming to the classic left wing view - supporting more radical political change.
