I am going to talk here about electoral reform, following our hung parliament result last year in the UK Elections. There’s a poll at the bottom, so please tell me what you think… Current System
We have a parliament with two “houses”, the House of Commons, and the House of Lords. The purposes of these two are slightly different. Generally, the House of Commons, made of nationally elected MPs, proposes laws, and then the House of Lords accepts, amends or blocks these laws. The two houses act as a check and balance on each other.
