House of Lords votes for 100% elected option

The decision by the House of Commons to vote for an 100% elected is not all together to my liking. As I had argued previously I support one parliamentary chamber, a very much minority view even in the Labour party, I believe that a fully elected second chamber will inevitably undermine the supremacy of the House of Commons.

Time will tell whether it will be implemented, I have my doubts but if we move towards and elected second chamber I really have my doubts whether it will make Britain a more effective democracy. I also believe we do not have a clamour in this country for more elected politicians.
