Richard Benyon revealed as extreme reactionary

Hard on the heels of proof that Richard Benyon does not practise what he preaches on global warming, comes news that he is an extreme reactionary:

(In the House of Lords vote last week), he voted first of all for the House of Lords to have no elected members at all. Mr Benyon would prefer a House of Lords full of Cameron's cronies to a House of Lords chosen by the people. This disdain for the voters of West Berkshire and for the principles of democracy demonstrates that he is one of the House's extreme reactionaries, a throwback to the nineteenth century, when the rich landowners thought they were born to rule.

  1. I'd quibble with the use of the word 'revealed' in your headline (Pope revealed as Catholic!)
