The difference is that in most other functioning democracies the second house is elected.
Really? The US and CH aside, can you give me a double-digit number of examples where the parliament is elected directly? I.e. the person is elected, rather than the party voted for.

Well if that were the case how did the UK end up committed to an EU that the voters apparently did not agree with... and of course given the voters opposition to unelected bodies making their laws it would seem that it has had it's day if voters are consistent...

It's supposed to be a representational democracy, only it doesn't represent.
Why are the people the monarch's subjects rather than citizens? For how long has the UK been a democracy?
