Britain in a nutshell

Britain's years of austerity are biting hard, with benefit cuts sending turning food banks into a growth industry. And then there's the House of Lords:

It has emerged that a proposal to save taxpayers some money by making peers and MPs share a catering department has been rejected “because the Lords feared that the quality of champagne would not be as good if they chose a joint service”.

Austerity, it seems, is only for the peasants. Meanwhile their unelected "betters" slurp champagne and quibble over its quality.

I can't think of a better reason why the Lords need to go. Time to erase this relic of feudalism, and make a start on erasing privilege.
