Abolish the House of Lords! The English Trade Union Congress’ battle bus will be outside the House of Lords tomorrow – campaigning to abolish the House of Lords!
The English Trade Union Congress takes the view that, in a real Democracy the “Will of the People” is sovereign. The People and the elected House of Commons, with an overwhelming majorities, voted to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. Now it would appear that certain unelected Lords are putting forward amendments to frustrate the democratic “Will of the People”. This must not be allowed! These Lords are putting their own unelected views above the Brexit referendum democratic result.
Eddie Bone, Campaign Director for the English Trade Union Congress, said:-
“The House of Lords no longer speaks for the people of England and it threatens to misuse its position to undermine the triggering of article 50. This is a provocation which shows that the self-important and unelected House of Lords should be abolished!”
“The English Trade Union Congress battle bus will be driving around Parliament Square at 2.30pm, tomorrow, the 28th February 2017, playing the “Lion and the Unicorn” nursery rhyme to help “Drive them out of Town!”
