        On Tuesday March 7,2017 the unelected House of Lords voted down the British Government again on #Brexit.

        It means that the non-leave supporters in the Brussels bureaucracy do not need to negotiate in seriousness with PM May as the Westminster Parliament can overturn the will of the people.

        Whatever your viewpoint the British people voted to leave. That is what we have to do with dignity. This country will soon be ungovernable unless someone in Government takes a grip of the situation.

        I feel strongly that now the country made its clear decision then we must go forward.

        There is a petition to Parliament with much support already to bring sanity back.

        "Replace the unelected House of Lords with a publicly elected body"

        If you get a chance #NigelFarage has got his finger on the pulse with this one in his March 7th phone in show on LBC from the Brussels studio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEdJ0wgnt5s

        If you signed the anti Trump petition then get your act together to sign this one. This is so much more vital to our future than stopping #realdonaldtrump coming to UK.

        ANYONE CAN VOTE WHO IS BRITISH, USE ANY UK POSTCODE YOU KNOW

                POLL #2

                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.

                    The Petition to the British Government for a debate on reforming the House of Lords has reached today as this typed:

                    122,744

                    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.

                        House of Lords Needs to be changed to a modern system of elected officials
                        not those who are cronies of Tony Blair, David Cameron, George Brown in payoffs in jobs for boys and girls…
