What she (and Burnham and Kendall) fail to realise that in 1997, Blair won by being hugely aggressive and positive over what they'd do in power. I knew exactly what I was getting in 1997 and Blair delivered it, he not only promised clearly and specifically right against the Tory press briefing but he got the message right that hope comes from delivering change to the people, he won a massive landslide based on that message.
Compare the 5 pledges from 1997 to this year. Blairs pledges were clear about what they would be doing, with numbers. The 5 (then 6...) pledges this year were all aspirations, we will do better, etc.
And the power of the House of Lords is what exactly? Does anyone actually know?
It's messy! Can send laws back to the commons, but ultimately the commons can force legislation through. Hence the need for reform (rather than the 800+ member there is now!!). Needs overhaul, partly so it acts as a proper revising chamber.
