I love it. A suggestion that the creation of peerages should be removed from the political parties, who have been making a mess of it since Lloyd George's time.
The Queen's the fount of honours. Why not just ask her to set up a system? I can guarantee the result would be better than anything you'd get from this lot of hacks. What? Not democratic enough? No, it isn't. In other words, it's not ripe for graft and corruption.
