Bringing Down the House (of Lords) on YouTube



If you’ve ever watched C-Span, you might have accidentally caught coverage of the House of Commons–where the UK’s Prime Minister gets many “hear, hears” and “hurrumphs.”

If you’ve ever turned to the channel while the House of Lords is on, you probably immediately fell into a coma–until someone switched the channel to something more interesting like the National Paint Drying Championships.

Well, that “happening and hip” House of Lords feels it’s a little misunderstood. So, in an effort to reach a younger audience and explain its value, the House of Lords has commissioned a series of YouTube videos.

I applaud the initiative, but I still fell asleep halfway through this video…

    I think its good they’re making the effort to appeal to young people. I dont think the video is boring I would want to know facts not see more flashy spin we usually get from government attempts at PR

    House of Lords on the Net! Will wonders never cease. I guess they should be appreciated for the effort they are making. If only the PR was better managed.
