Blair to curb Lords powers

House of LordsIt seems that Blair has now decided to move against the House of Lords with or without the support of the opposition parties:

The change of tone dates from last Wednesday after politicians met Jack Straw, the new leader of the House of Commons, only to learn that a carefully agreed deal with Lord Falconer, the lord chancellor, to balance changes in the powers of Lords with plans for a newly elected House had been torn up by Mr Blair.
