Opportunity to ditch the Lords

AFTER the offensive nonsense from Lord Lang and Baroness Liddell, it is hardly a surprise that the latest polls show a rise in support for the Yes campaign (News, 26 January).

Readers may recollect an argument against devolution that the people of Scotland did not need another layer of government. Well a Yes vote is a glorious opportunity to get rid of two layers of government, the House of Commons and that superfluous, unelected talking shop, the House of Lords.
