BILLY BRAGG 'DANGEROUS AND MAD': For quite a while, Billy Bragg's indirect election plan to replace the House of Lords has been getting a lot of admiration - former housemate of Tony, Charlie Falconer is said to be keen on the plan; Peter Hain is also an admirer. However, Tony Wright (Lab, Cannock Chase) think's Bragg's plan is 'dangerous and mad'. He doesn't actually explain why it's dangerous and mad - probably something to do with turning Britain into a parliamentary democracy, we'd suppose; and where on earth would that lead us?
