Cease all new appointments

Upon entering Government we will immediately end all new appointments to the House of Lords, swiftly ending the undemocratic selection procedure.

This changes the wording a bit to be more confident and also demonstrates one of the nasty things we'll get rid of.

I think the constitutional reforms on the books at the moment are too deep-cutting, such that they will scare the public and reduce cross-party support. But this particular amendment isn't too bad 👍

👍 also @Xyleneb if you want to open an issue on constitutional reforms that you aren't too fond on, I'm happy to get involved in that discussion.

Ok I'll see what I wrote down a couple years ago and compare it to what's on the books. Constitutional reforms may have already (finally) happened in the time since though and made my scribbles a bit irrelevant.
