    Yep - I'm unsure how a senate will be elected, but I am in favour of FULL democratic representative and that applies to the upper chamber. That said, I would allow a small amount of ex-officio 'senators' for the current law lords (though they must be crossbenchers). There are 5 law lords I believe. I won't allow religious representation other than through the ballot box.
