What I didn't realise was that I would find an example that was both so recent and on his own website.
“The Lords are an archaic anomaly which fuels disillusionment with British politics. It exists purely on a democratic deficit which has been allowed to evolve unchecked for centuries.” - Peter Hain

Is anyone shocked? Didn't think so.
Edit - Peter Hain was officially sworn in as a peer on the 24th November 2015. That's just over a year since he made his original comment on his website. He's probably due a new iPad.
