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’ battle bus will be driving around Whitehall, Westminster and Parliament Square at 9.00am, tomorrow, the 3rd March 2017, playing the derisive “Lion and the Unicorn” nursery rhyme to help “Drum them out of Town”!
Both the People and the elected House of Commons, with 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, if it ever did, but now it threatens to misuse its position to undermine the triggering of Article 50. If carried through then this is a provocation which shows that the self-important and unelected House of Lords should be abolished!”
Eddie continued:- “The English Trade Union Congress http://englishtuc.org/ takes the view that, in a real Democracy “The People” are sovereign and implementing the “Will of the People” is the duty of our constitutional representative bodies. The House of Lords must fulfill this duty or be abolished.”

Did you have any issue with the House of Lords before they mildly threatened your cherished Brexit?
I don’t recall anything on the vote form regarding existing EU nationals remaining in this country?
I cannot understand why we have so many members compared to other countries like the U.S.and feel that we could have a quarter of them,or fewer .They do not deserve the allowances they receive as they often do not attend or speak and much needed money could be saved. Most members are from privileged sections of society and for them to try to stop what the people want is unjust.
The House of Lords is an affront to democracy which we have been trying to get rid of for over a hundred years and it’s about time this anachronism was consigned to the rubbish-bin of history.
The House of Lords is a Gravy Train with 800 passengers.
