No Lords

One of my primary reasons for voting Yes next week is to rid Scotland of the House of Lords, which serves no useful purpose in a modern society and is an expensive institution.

When will the Westminster government understand that its archaic parliamentary system is long overdue for reform? I only hope that after a Yes vote they get another wake-up call and give the English, Welsh and Northern Irish voters proportional representation for a more balanced and accountable parliament in the future and abolish the Lords.
