Is the House of Lords indefensible?

By Global

On today's episode we launch the Christmas Countdown - our (and your) favourite soundbites of political inanity of 2022.

Please send in the moments you want us to revisit and react to.

But before we get there, we talk about Sir Keir Starmer's plans to abolish the House of Lords and redistribute the economy more faithfully around the country. Is it justifiable to have an unelected upper chamber in 2022? And what would the replacement actually look and sound like? We speak to Baroness Hilary Armstrong, a Labour peer, and Conservative MP Vicky Ford.
