Shock plans to AXE more than 200 Lords put forward in bid to 'restore its reputation'

PEERS who rarely bother to attend the Upper Chamber could be booted out of House of Lords under potential new plans to cull the unelected body by more than 200.

The proposals would see the Lords with the worst attendance record kicked out of the Chamber, along with a large chunk of those over 80 years old – cutting the numbers by a quarter.

There are more than 800 peers in the House of Lords – but these new plans could see the body trimmed down to 600.

A gaggle of Lords who have a serious criminal record, served time in prison for fraud, perverted the course of justice or broken expenses rules would also be among the first to go.

Seven peers could fall victim to these new laws, including Lord Archer and Lord Hanningfield

    Why are they even allowed to stay?, they should have been removed immediately!

    They should replace the House of Lords with a chamber of the most knowledgeable people in every field
