A Revoir to the Lords

Yesterday, in the New York Times:

England is considering subjecting the House of Lords to elections. From the standpoint of our research over the last month, this is the institution that Adams thought was essential to a balance of powers in the UK, along with the monarch. If England makes the House of Lords based on election, will it mean that the ideals of the French Revolution have overtaken England, in the end? Was the opposition of Adams for nothing?

My goodness! The House of Lords elected by common voters...wait, I see a pig starting to flap his wings, and Lucifer getting three bids for central air.

Prince Charles is the poster boy for why hereditary rulers are a bad idea.
