Lord's Loot

The Sunday Times has claimed that 4 Labour Peers were ready to take cash to influence legislation. This comes after several other allegations of corruption against Members of Parliament over the years and calls into question how money can corrupt politics and democracy its self.
Because Interactive Democracy requires a Parliament it doesn't remove manipulation by money, but it may reduce its influence by diffusing power among millions of voters. ID doesn't require a House of Lords as voters have the power to check Government and Parliament and counter balance their power.
