On June 23rd, 2016 the people of our country voted in the one and only referendum on the subject to vote to leave the European Union – #Brexit. Now, the political power brokers in Britain’s establishment as represented in the House of Lords are trying to use legal procedures to interfere with the will of the people. The House of Lords wants the right to veto the 2 year of negotiations ahead by the Government. Big politics supports staying in the EU; Big Businesses Support staying in the EU – but the working classes of this country want out through the clear mandate in the #Brexit poll.
Has the current House of Lords overstepped the will of the people in its voting down the government’s Article 50 bill on March 7, 2017? Remember the House of Lords is full of members drawing pension and other benefits from having worked in the European Commission, and therefore biased in their pro-EU stance are part of the right to vote on any bill. In this case it is against the will of the people. BTW, the EU retirees lose their benefits the day Britain exits the EU.
For this and many other reason of cronyism in the House of Lords, please vote in our poll to have a representative Upper Chamber to replace the current shambles then vote YES. If you wish to retain the status quo, that the House of Lords does a good job then vote NO!
Thank you for your interest. Edited:Promoting our own poll in this BritsinCrete forum
The Petition to the British Government for a debate on reforming the House of Lords has reached today as this typed:
Reason for the petition. The House of Lords is being abused by our elected officials by filling it with cronies. It costs our taxpayers around £100 million a year (probably much more) The House of Lords is the largest parliamentary chamber in any democracy. It is surpassed in size only by China’s National People’s Congress.
The "Cronies" have tried to usurp the will of the British people on triggering #Article50 – the #Brexit Bill.
