Turning the House of Lords into the Westminster Multiplex

It seems that both Government and Opposition have taken to screening films and TV shows in the House of Lords in order to try to persuade peers to stay for evening votes.

So far, peers have enjoyed the Bond film Skyfall, a film on Clement Attlee and Downton Abbey.

If films and discussions are needed in order to persuade their Lordships to do their job, then the case for reform just gets stronger and stronger.
