Thoughts on the Second Chamber

1999-11-06 03:00:00 UTC

While talking with my mother earlier today we came up with an alternative system to the House of Lords: Now that the hereditary peers are being cast out, the second chamber could use of a sort of jury system for determining its members. People could be randomly seleced to serve for a limited amount of time in pretty much the same way that they're selected for jury service. It would be an improvement in democracy and would add a little more balance to decision making.
