House of Lords

Who wouldn’t love a peerage? Massive amounts of money just for turning up, the title, the respect and not to mention the cool robes for state occasions.

But its a pretty homogeneous bunch in the lords. There is one lord under 40. That’s not a good representation of the country though, maybe its time for an influx of young blood, Members of the House of Commons can stand at 18 and theoretically a peer can sit from 21, so why are there no peers age 21-40….maybe it’s time.
