Given that David Cameron is set to send even more of his cronies – whose contribution to Cameron’s Tories will have more to do with their position than any worth to the country – into the Upper House in the Dissolution Honours, Ms Cooper has a point, wouldn’t you say?
There should be a freeze on the appointment of new peers until the House of Lords has been reformed, Labour leadership contender Yvette Cooper says.
She said it was time to “break the logjam” with more peers attending the Lords than ever before.
There are currently 781 peers eligible to take part in Lords proceedings.
A new list of peerages is expected next week.
The Dissolution Honours List is made following the end of every Parliament.
