    Abolish the House of Lords. They have not been elected, they don’t represent us, they only represent themselves and will do whatever is in their own interests.

      I have always defended the House of Lords as being balanced and an alternative voice to the Commons, now however, I am disgusted, from know on which ever party agrees to dismantle the HoL after the next election, that’s who I will vote for, I’m done with the aging, out of touch cretins..

    Lords reform comes to the fore again,UKIP must push for this as it was in the manifesto. There should be a second house not full of political appointees,there numbers limited and their time in office limited

  3. Anthony stacey says:

    I would like to know how many objected to this. 92 peers are hereditary, the rest are appointed and tend to follow party political lines.

    From an earlier reposrt, i wrote this;

    Here is an interesting little factoid for those that wish to see an elected House of Lords.

    The “Labour peers Lord Judd and Lord Adonis along with Lib Dem Lord Wallace of Tankerness had tabled the most amendments.”

    These Peers were politically appointed Peers! They are NOT hereditary Peers and they are fighting Brexit i.e. fighting the will of the people. Do we really want a House of Lords based upon party lines?

    It would be interesting if someone made a study of all the other Peers based on this, to see if the balance favours political appointees that are against the will of the people.

  6. Stanley Cutts says:

    The House of Lords consists of a collection of dreary old codgers who have spent their sycophantic lives as members of the “grace and favour” club. They add no value whatsoever to our democracy – in fact, on the international scale, they are an embarrassment. Most of them turn up only to claim their considerable daily “expenses”. We should put the lot of them out to grass.

  7. Patricia Roberts says:

    The lords are outdated ship them out to Russia where there is no democracy .How dare they go against the will of the people.That should be on our next agenda to have a public vote to abolish them .

  8. Ceri Jayes says:

    Search for Petition Parliament 209433 to sign up for a call to give the electorate a referendum on the abolition of the House of Lords. Share it far and wide.

  9. MIKE MAUNDER says:

    Generally I consider that an upper house, involved with the picking apart of possible legislation, and advising the House of Common, to be something that we may well need. …….. THE HOUSE OF LORDS AINT IT ! Correction of this is way overdue.

  10. Mike says:

    Traitors sack the lot

  11. Mike says:

    Traitors we the British people pay there wages sack them all now.

    Arthur Wellesley the 1st Duke of Wellington may have been a leading figure of the Battle of Waterloo but only succeeded with the help of the Prussian Army led by General/Field Marshal, Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher.
    To understand the true caricature of this stuffed up pompous Lord of the realm, we need to go forward to 1828 to 1830. As prime minister, he thwarted any attempt to give the people of Britain the right to vote. He never gave up undermining the will of the people until the Reform Act of 1832 was passed.
    Now move forward to 2018 and hear again we have the same stuffed up pompous Duke of Wellington (Arthur Charles Valerian Wellesley) undermining the will of the people.
    Do not for one moment believe or imagine that these scumbags in ermine are just out to protect their money. Or that they want Brexit to go through smoothly. These stuffed up pompous louts TRULY believe they are superior and perfectly entitled to ignore YOU/WE the people. They have NEVER cared about democracy, NEVER cared about the law, NEVER understood the difference between right and wrong. Their arrogance knows no bounds.
    They are the backbone of the establishment that took us into the EU and the underlying, controlling factor that has propped up the LibLabCon government for the last 6 decades.
    If we allow these evil men and women to do as they please then George Orwell’s 1984 will become a history book.

    • Stanley Cutts says:

      Well said Barry. Their breed is lucky that they’re not French, otherwise they would have faced Madame Guillotine long ago! However, given their arrogance, they still should be candidates for the CHOP!

      • MIKE MAUNDER says:

        Oh Barry and Stanley ! Your comments are so pertinent to my true feelings about this filth in ermine, that I am ashamed to own my Christian belief ! Then again it is the truth, so I don’t feel that bad !
