Well that really worked!

When Labour promised to reform the House Of Lords, this isn't what most people would have imagined.

The four peers, including two former ministers, face a Parliamentary inquiry into allegations that they pledged to amend laws in return for payments from lobbyists. They were secretly recorded in an undercover newspaper sting apparently pledging to seek changes to proposed laws as paid consultants for a foreign businessman.

But it is what I expected. Wouldn't it be deliciously ironic if the Labour Party used the misbehaviour of their own appointed peers to push for more changes to the Upper Chamber? Yes, I really do believe they have that much cheek.
