Straw urges more Commons action as bills 'run dry' - a bit rich

Perhaps they shouldn't have filled the Lords with thick liabour apparatchiks who can't process the bills fast enough. At least the axed peers were fairly sharp and well-educated....

Pity CMD didn't deliver on his election promise of a bonfire of sh1t legislation; the Commons could have passed their idle time going through the books with a big red pen.
Good - less shite legislation coming through.

As there is less work for them to do, we can crack on with cutting the number of MPs (10% would be a good start)

Quick analysis of how much Westminster work (as %) is not relevant to MPs whose countries have devolved powers and dock their salaries by that percentage.

Start docking salaries for those with unacceptable attendance records (ahem - Mr Brown)

Less new legislation means less civil servants to enact it - scope for redundancies.

There saved a fortune!
