Time for Reform?

The excellent Pab draws our attention to the important matters that are engaging our Upper House these days.

Like whether "traditional singing and dancing, such as morris dancing" will form part of the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Still, nice to know some of them have a sense of humour:

Baroness Billingham: My Lords, could I express a little concern about the Question? Like every other Member in the House I have received an invitation, first, to join the Parliamentary Choir; and secondly, to join tap-dancing classes. I have to ask—this is of great concern—is there some plan afoot to ensure that Members of this House are in some way to be coerced into the opening spectacular of the Olympic Games in 2012?

Lord Davies of Oldham: My Lords, I can reassure my noble friend that all that has happened is a long-overdue recognition of her outstanding talents.
