Labour is the party of political corruption. It was Labour that maintained an electoral system that made sure a Tory vote was always worth less than a Labour vote, Labour that froze boundary reform to a glacial pace that preserved their utterly corrupt electoral advantage. Now the coalition is taking the sword to Labour's Gordian Knot, they are whining like spoilt brats. And don't forget, it was Labour who, in creating more of their own peers than Tory peers, attempted even to unbalance the Lords to their corrupt advantage.
You may be astonished to know that Labour left the Lords with 234 Labour peers to just 193 Tory peers. If those seats on the red benches were allocated according to last May's vote share, it would be 237 Tory peers to 190 Labour peers.
No. Labour are whining because all their electoral dirty tricks, all their cheating and unfair advantage, all their corrupt, unscrupulous and rotten deceits and deceptions are being cleaned out, and our political system being returned to something with fairness, probity and transparency. And that's what they hate.
