S'pose your right, the puritans wanted an end to the episcopacy as well.

Can't a guy make a vague historical quote in a pretentious attempt to get attention anymore?

Well, you just did, and you certainly got attention (particularly given the obscurity of the quote). So I guess you can.

In the interest of prolonging threads beyond their natural term, I think Lord and Lady Hayden-Guest are extremely cool and should be allowed to sit in session.

Dunno, I'm not sure Jamie Lee-Curtis is a British subject.

The Lords aren't taking it lying down. They've voted in favour of an all appointed house. You'd think they'd have the decency to go gracefully.

How little self-respect would someone have to have to 'go gracefully' by that standard?

The British have already reduced the House of Lords to a speed bump. It would be very abnormal for the Lords to then turn around and say "you're right, I shouldn't be able to sit here and exercise my one, rather small, power."
