York, New location of the House of Lords ?

I just read in the British press that Boris Johnson is considering relocating the House of Lords to the north of England, with York as the main candidate.

The Sunday Times reports:
"If York is chosen as the Lords' new home, it will be the first time the city has been a center of political power since the English Civil War, when it played host to the Council of the North ...... The move would be considered as part of a wider constitutional review, which will also look at the role of the Supreme Court and the Lord Chancellor "

Conservative Party chairman James Cleverly confirmed the plan was being considering in Downing Street after reports emerged that the prime minister had ordered officials to look into the practicalities of shifting the Lords outside of London.

After reading this post, I immediately started looking for a suitable place in my archive and found in Clifford's Tower, the keep of York Castle, a nice suitable location after this castle has been thoroughly renovated and upgraded. A beautiful location that fully fits in with the rich British traditions and heritage.

As usual, three photos that this time give an overview of this possible new home of the House of Lords.
