The Lords is a outdated and superfluous institution. It is high time it was abolished.

We'd all be better without religious divisions, dogma and prejudice too.

The Spectator is a lousy publication too.

Britain needs younger and more forward-looking leaders and institutions. We are hamstrung by dinosaurs from a glorious but not particularly creditable past.

By examining various Ancient Pagan Texts and comparing the epics and stories within with the bible, it can be clearly seen how the bible has simply copied these texts, only changing a few minor details such as the names of people or places.

So a judaist, Lord Sacks (of Shite), believes islamists to be barbarians.

I don't see how Atheism comes into his issues.
