Hmmmmmm

We hadn't realised that the plan for a 100% elected lords would involve having the "senate" (or whatever) elections on the same day as the euro elections.

Presumably that would mean that parties that do better in European elections would be more likely to get seats in the Lords. That would be good news for UKIP and maybe the tories. Bad news for the Libs (in fourth in 2003) and the poor old broadcasters - do you give people time in proportion to their senate seats or share of MEPs? Nightmare.

What is more, with state funding of parties being likely do you give money on th eback of these elctions. If so UKIP may well do very well indeed.
I am sure that that is not something that our masters have considrered.
