I feel as if they should have a more signifcant role in government, or be eliminated entirely. It seems to me that, like the Soverign, they are there mostly because the British are reluctant to change, not because the British think the Lords should have any power. I think I'm in favor of stronger Lords, much as I am in favor of a strong Senate, to act as a check on the power of the people, if such a thing can be imagined. After all, democratic decisions aren't always good decisions.
